By all accounts, the 1994 idents were not deemed exciting enough. Lambie Nairn, responsible for the original Carlton idents, devised thirty, quirky new animations, which made their debut on Monday 25th November 1996. They remained in use until Friday 3rd September 1999. TV ARK presents a selection of examples below, many with clean audio; also four Christmas idents.
Several of these idents were specific to certain ITV peak-time series, but TV Ark does not currently have the idents designed for Coronation Street, Emmerdale, The Bill, Soldier Soldier, Videotech, Carlton Country and Home and Away. The latter had the Carlton logo shown upside down. We would be most grateful for any donations.
