Associated Rediffusion started ITV with the company who was to
be known as ATV with this ident.
In addition to the above ident, another variant was used.
variant featured 'Associated-Rediffusion' moving in from the left of the
screen, whilst 'Channel Nine' moved in from the right. Whilst the lettering
was sliding into position, the BET star would spin around and then stop
when the lettering was in place. The same jingle was used.
For a year, Rediffusion used this caption for its
front-caps to networked programmes, then was demoted to local programming
when the grey variant came in to use. Rediffusion also super-imposed
their logo onto the end of programming.
Rediffusion's most famous ident saw more animation
and a change to grey from the previous ident
