BBC2 (second era)

1991-1997

As part of an extensive rebrand to cast off BBC2's 'highbrow' tone, Lambie-Nairn launched a brand new set of idents which lasted 10 years until they were replaced in 2001. For the first time a corporate logo scheme featuring the 1988 BBC logo was employed across all of the BBC's services.

The rebrand did work, and although the programming was exactly the same as before, the perception of BBC2 by the public shifted from 'highbrow' and 'stuffy' to cool and trendy.

BBC Two (second era)

1997–2001

On October 4, 1997, BBC Two got a new look created by Lambie-Nairn.

2001-2007

In November 2001, the logo was boxed. The idents were changed for the first time in 10 years; the logo stayed the same, but it was given a pair of arms and a personality. The BBC added to the roster of 4 idents over the years.

2007-present

A new logo of the arrived on February 18, 2007. The typography has changed from Gill Sans to Avenir and the box has changed its colour from purple to teal. The blade '2' has been slightly altered, it is now more squat than before.
