pause for station identification

Colossal takes us back to the days when the logos for television and film studios were physical objects, animated by practical effects, which is not so very long ago. There’s an extensive history of the evolution of the BBC’s signature emblem that has of course an interesting parallel run to the development of the media property.  I recall vividly too NBC’s peacock and the diorama flyover introduction for HBO features—which you can watch at the link up top.
