1st Logo

(1983)

GW298H202

Logo: On a black background, we see the words "CYCLO VIDEO" being typed in on-screen in little amber

cubes.

FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: The words being typed in (the amber cubes appearing), dated computer animation. Looks like it was done on an Atari 2600.

Music/Sounds: A bombastic fanfare after 8 seconds of silence, sourced from the KPM library track "Fanfare (1)" composed by Neil Richardson and released on the 1970 album Scenesetters, Fanfares, and Punctuations (catalog number KPM 1057). Also, in the silence, if you listen very closely, you can hear the fanfare in the background.

Availability: Rare. Seen on many pre-cert releases and video nasties from the UK. It was known to be on their video series The Gamma Chronicles. You might also find it on ATA releases also.

Scare Factor: Minimal. The fanfare coming a bit late may scare some.

2nd Logo

(1983)

GW298H201

Logo: On a black background, we see many colorful rainbow-like pieces come together to form a giant fan, a

la the View Video logo. Then, a section a section at a time, the fan disappears to reveal the words "CYCLO VIDEO" in a white sports T-shirt-style font.

FX/SFX: The fan appearing and disappearing.

Cheesy Factor: Off the scale. Very poor animation (looks like it was done in Commodore 64) and the colors look pretty bad. Also, the whole thing is slow-paced.

Music/Sounds: A triumphant Moog synth fanfare which is Keith Mansfield's "Superstar Fanfare (h)". The music was also used in the Channel Television logo.

Availability: Same for as the 1st logo.

Scare Factor: None, unless the Moog synth fanfare unnerves you.
