The BBC boxes fade in above, forming a CGI version of the 1980 BBC Logo when the word Pictures appears.

Music/Sounds: A somber and creepy 9-note piano piece followed by the sound of a choir holding the final note.

Scare Factor: Low to nightmare, because of the logo's ominous nature, combined with the piano piece, as it may unnerve some viewers, and might as well give viewers bad dreams. The scare factor is none for people used to seeing it.
