First aired on Friday 28th September 2018 as a black and white stripe animation, this sequence was temporarily withdrawn from use in October 2018. It reappeared on BBC Two Northern Ireland at 8pm on Sunday 25th November 2018: the black background was now a light grey colour and the intensity of the white stripes was reduced.

Although there’s never been any official comment from the BBC, it’s believed the adjustments were made following concerns that the original version may trigger migraines for some viewers.

The modified version of the ident returned to BBC Two network in January 2019. However it has been aired only a few times to date.
