BBC Four: 2002-2005

BBC Four was launched on 2 March 2002, as a replacement for BBC Knowledge.  It broadcasts from 7pm daily, sharing its multiplex on Freeview with CBeebies, which closes shortly before. A broadcasting trend-setter, BBC4’s idents reacted live to the announcer using computer graphics.
