ITV1 Wales: 2006-2013

Introduced on 13 November 2006, ITV1 began using idents with the theme "alive with colour", and ITV Wales viewers continued to receive modified versions of these idents. However, the ‘Wales’ identifier was now added live to the idents at a predetermined stage in the formup, and were not part of the idents themselves. This is seen most clearly in the first two examples below, ‘Market’ and ‘Beach’. As the era progressed the ‘Wales’ indicator became steadily futher eroded until it remained only on promotions and within the local news.
