Sir Gavin Sutherland conducts the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra playing his own, brilliant, composition: the Transdiffusion March.

How many ITV idents can you spot interwoven into the music?

I found Rediffusion, ABC, TWW and Tyne Tees Television. Hope I’m right.

You are right Alan but I seem to recall Gavin telling me there were 19 or 20 idents hidden in the march! But you have got 4!

Surely ATV and Yorkshire were in there as well?

I’ve managed to come up with 14 (some of them less obvious than they might otherwise be because of unfamiliar instumentation or cadence):

0:05 ATV?
0:15 Rediffusion London
0:37 Southern
0:42 ABC
1:14 TWW
1:32 Tyne Tees
1:34 A-R
1:52 Yorkshire
1:55 Grampian
2:00 Ulster
2:37 Westward
2:41 TVS
2:50 TSW
3:07 ABC (again)

I don’t doubt that there are others in there which are too subtle for me to pick up.

Is there a definitive list? My own favourite is the Channel 4 ident at the very end – do I have to send £3.50 to David Dundas for that?

Granada March is in there… Somewhere…
