Lissajous stays! (was there ever any doubt?)

ABC Logo

The Director of ABC Television, Kim Dalton, has moved swiftly to refute a story on page 1 of today’s Australian, which suggested that when the new logo for ABC1 launches next week, it will see the end of the iconic Lissajous (known also as ‘the worm’). 

Speaking to the Sydney Morning Herald, Mr Dalton said: “We’re announcing next week a new look for both ABC television and what’s at the present known as ABC2.

“That’s going to involve a new onscreen look. But the worm will absolutely retained as part of the branding for both of our channels.”

“It will have the same sort of primacy as it has at the moment. It’s the most important logo for the ABC … and we will continue to use it.”

Crisis over!

    Whoa! Sounds good to me…

    Anyways,Any news about ABC3’s Concept?

  2. Andy says:

    ABC3 is planned as operating from 6am to 9pm, 7 days a week. They are aiming for the majority of the programming being Australian. They wish to show repeats of programmes, particularly those which have not been repeated before, and are also wanting to make a lot of new programmes for it.

    It is a fantastic concept – and one which Australia badly needs, to counter the horrible Foxtel kids channels.

    But Will it be the same as ABC2?

    For as far as I Know,ABC2 Also show repeats…

    And will they air Some shows exclusively for ABC3?

    Anyways…How I wish there’s ABC News 24 🙂

    Some programmes will be exclusive to ABC3, just as some are exclusive to ABC2.

    The difference will be that ABC2 has an annual budget of just $3 million. while the ABC are aiming to have an annual budget of $20 million for ABC3.
