Clayton Hickman decided to update the skyline in the classic Thames Television colour ident using modern photos and including some of the landmarks that have appeared since 1969. He very kindly asked me if I'd like to try animating the skyline.
I created a THAMES caption in Inkscape and then animated the ident in Blender. At the same time, the composer and conductor Ben Foster contacted Clayton and kindly volunteered to rearrange John Hawksworth's Salute To Thames jingle in a modern style. Ben not only did this, but got an orchestra to perform it too!
We hope you enjoy our tribute to one of British television's best-loved icons.
