Since 2007, the presentation package of BBC Two has never met the expectations of the channel controllers. The new look theme of a ‘window on the world’ launched on 18 February 2007. In June 2009, the look was altered as part of an attempted refresh, resulting in a number of idents removed from use without replacements or additions. A new trail style and an accompanying set of bumpers were also introduced.
In 2014, the new BBC Two controller Kim Shillinglaw highlighted an unhappiness with the look; while financial restraints would not allow for a completely new presentation package, the decision was made to reintroduce a selection of idents from the 1997-2001 set, re-airing from July 2014.
