BBC One Wales officially launched on the 9th of February 1964. The BBC kept using the globe across the network, and Wales would not officially have its own regional ident until 1968. Before 1964, regional newscasts for Wales were done by BBC West, headquartered in Bristol. Idents were made for the Wales region for this occasion.
