Back in 1989, a new sports tv channel was launched in Europe. The channels name was Eurosport which still exists in Europe. It is one of the longest surviving sports television networks in Europe, but in the later years they have almost got rid of the stars in their logo which is pretty bad. It was and is the stars that makes Eurosport the star of the sports, but when you remove too much. Now that’s bad!
Eurosport was known for their Amazing starts and ends
Ever since Eurosport started to broadcast, their main channel have always broadcasted from early mornings to late evenings. However, the channel still got breaks during the night. But back in the days, Eurosport had this amazing starts and endings sequences. So, in this video which I found on-line. Eurosport plays Yello – The Race while program schedule is showing at the end of the day. But that’s not all. After program schedule is done, then they show a showcase of different sports with fantastic music that sets the mood for the channels identity. Now this was something that was really amazingly in the 1990s. Now, Eurosport just shows a showcase with nothing more. It’s as if Eurosport have lost the identity totally.

Yello – The Race
When showing the program schedule in 1993, Eurosport played music from Yello – The Race. This became such iconic that many still remembers The Race on Eurosport. In this clip you also see fantastic promotion clip after the program schedule also. Fantastic music here also.
Quantum Channel takeover
Back in the 1990s, the different tv channel takeovers was fantastic made. Often you could see several tv channels on one channel like on the clip above. The change from Eurosport to the Quantum channel is great etc.
