BBC One created a special version of its 1991 Christmas ident to promote the network television premiere of Batman, starring Michael Keaton, Kim Basinger and Jack Nicholson.
The film aired at 6pm on Christmas Day. The link into the film did of course include this special ident. However, the ident also popped up elsewhere in the schedule, such as here, just before 10am on Christmas Day.
