Blue Peter Competition FOr Christmas Ident
Christmas pudding space hoppers are bouncing across festive
TV this year after a 10-year-old Blue Peter viewer won a BBC One design competition.
Charlotte Strethill-Smith had her winning drawing of bouncing pudding space hoppers
chosen from more than 20,000 ident designs.
Idents or Station identification is the practice of a television station or network
identifying itself, typically with a theme or brand name.
There are five versions of the films, featuring children in fur boots and holly
gloves bouncing in an ice park.
Children's programme Blue Peter had asked viewers to come up with an idea for the
ident about dance and movement.
On Blue Peter to unveil the clips, Charlotte said she thought the finished product
was "great" and she enjoyed "a brilliant day" watching her design being turned into
a film. "It was the first idea that came into my head," she said of the bouncy
Christmas puddings idea.
