UK Gold Classics


UK Gold Classics launched in October 1998.

Prior to 2003, the channel was essentially an offshoot from UK Gold and either showed timeshifted programmes from that channel or programmes of similar themes. The visual identity and graphics were also shared with UK Gold.

UK Gold 2


On April 2, 1999, UK Gold Classics was replaced by UK Gold 2.





On November 12, 2003, UK Gold 2 was replaced by UK G².

The visual identity was created by BBC Broadcast.

"UK G2 brings together a carefully chosen mix of comedy and drama that have a uniquely British sardonic view of the world and will feature repeats of hit comedies and dramas including Have I Got News For You, Room 101 and Spooks.
The channel identity reflects this, as it is based on the idea of "bending the rules." The identity for the new channel reflects the irreverent humour of its shows. Individual films observe people who should know better, mischievously flouting social convention and unexpectedly bending the rules." - BBC Broadcast press release

On March 8, 2004, all UKTV channels adopted the UKTV name and UK G² became UKTV G2.

The visual identity for the relaunched channel was created by Red Bee Media.
