ITV Christmas 2023

No surprise to see last year's trailer graphics return for this year.

Santa in a field is back. No surprise there either.

The Christmas version of the 'Beach' ident aired late last night

Just add a Santa to your year-long idents. Instant Christmas ident set!

Seriously, Santa at the beach buying an ice-cream? Where are we, Australia?

The last set of really good Christmas idents we had from ITV1 were the 2012 ones- the mechanical carousel Christmas tree. They really were superb. Only used that year.

Nothing they've made since has come even slightly close to being as good as they were.

I do like the idea of Christmas variations of the main idents but these are just not quite strong enough - OK for a year, but don't feel as reusable as the 2013-2018 set for example or the BBC2 idents.

Dear god, not Santa in a field again. All the leaves on the trees of course.

No surprise here - ITV have done this for years. They recycled the 2013 Christmas idents for a further five years right, with just the odd extra one added now and again.

BBC 2 recycle theirs too - only BBC One gives us a new Christmas ident selection each year.

What about Channel 4? Smile

That 2012 set was good, but badly timed - didn't they change the corporate logo only a month later? They probably could've just replaced the old ITV1 logo with the new ITV logo on those.

It’s quite bleak, isn’t it? The Christmas jumper graphics slapped on the endboards are ridiculously dull and half-hearted. I’ve seen more festive funerals.
