BBC TV Ident 1953 - The Batwings

Abram Games BBC Television Symbol is re-animated here. It's not 100% as I'd like it, the wings don't look right and the lighting effects are a bit dodgy as a result.

BBC1 Clock 2002 (never broadcast)

Apparently, this clock was ticking away happily in the background but we know it was never shown on BBC1. Accurately re-made in Flash.

BBC2 Continuity 1967

In 1967, colour had officially come to BBC2. However, an official colour ident had not! Contrary to popular belief, during the test phase they simply used the old style presentation luma-keyed, then when colour went full time in 1967 they just used these holding slides to introduce programmes. It wasn't until all channels were going colour in 1969 that the famous rotating coloured 2's were introduced.
