The early hours of Boxing Day – i.e., the end of the Christmas Day schedule on BBC One.

Somewhat unusually, no clock at closedown here – just the festive ident.

Notice that the ident animation ends shortly before the end of the National Anthem. Notice also the ‘888’ appearing in the top right corner in error initially – it disappears just after the National Anthem is cued.
