The BBC One ‘Oneness’ idents are a set of on-screen channel identities used on BBC One from 1 January 2017 to present. The idents feature groups of people doing activities in everyday life, with the aim of the showing them coming together in these various ways. The logo is now placed at the bottom of the screen instead of the middle.
Street photographer Martin Parr was commissioned by BBC One to create the idents. The ‘Oneness’ theme had first been exhibited the previous Christmas for the channel’s identity, hence giving the impression that those idents ultimately served as a preview to the new look that made its full launch on New Year’s Day 2017. Around 20 idents are expected to be filmed, which will be gradually introduced one-by-one over the course of the first year.
