Exceptionally durable, this keyring is made with high quality zinc alloy and the design is coated with a hard-wearing, soft touch epoxy coating. Perfectly weighted, it’s heavy enough to notice (you don’t want to lose your keys) but light enough to not be a burden in either pocket or bag. The 1970s style ‘BBC2’ image beautifully recreates the retro feeling of the television ident (logo) of that decade.
The “Cube 2” logo, as it was known, was featured by BBC Two from 1967 to 1974. It was a blue figure '2', with a dot positioned inside (three spots came together to make a central dot, then a 2 was drawn around the dot, the colour legend appeared underneath and the 2 rotated). When rotating, a red, green and white ‘2” were revealed. This was to reflect that BBC2 was the only UK television station with a colour service on the UHF band. When BBC1 transferred to colour, in 1969, the ident was updated to be consistent.
