And in any event, 1991's BBC1 idents were not made on a computer, they were drawn by hand.
I heard it was made by filming a goldfish-bowl full of dirty water and leaves, and stirring it around anti-clockwise.

Re: People you've met you wish you hadn't

Sorry to take the thread back on topic, but Gavin, you might like to check out this video of Cannibal Anthony on awful 90s late night TV show, God's Gift, if you're wondering if it's the same bloke you met...

Re: Pizza Hut Rebrands

The atmosphere's usually quite relaxed too - think wooden floors and nice lighting, with none of the cheap tackiness you'd associate with Pizza/Pasta Hut. Probably not the place you'd go for an intimate, quiet meal, but for a relaxed, e...
