BBC Two: Christmas 2016

On Sunday 4th December 2016, BBC Two launched their Christmas presentation. This year’s presentation was almost identical to that of the previous year. However, the most pedantic of individuals may observe a new logo as well as a ‘new’ endboard design, which was previously used in 2011 and 2012 and for regional promotions exclusively afterwards.

More idents and presentation will be added over time.
