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.
