BBC2 first computer generated clock (1979)

Concept and creative process

To complement the first computer generated BBC2 channel ident, Sid Sutton also designed a clock in the same white, orange and beige colourways, with the new inline logo and bars centred below in the lower third of the screen. The seconds were marked in orange at 5 second intervals with strokes of even weight, with the hour and minute hands in white and the white second hand in a slightly lighter weight. This clock remained in service until 1986.
