Watch It! was highly regionalised and in an effort to create a coherent structure for the strand, a new look and format were introduced in January 1983, the new name being Children's ITV. Interstitial programming was pre-recorded and played out to the network by Central with the main programming being supplied and played out by all regional companies. Children's ITV went live in 1987 following the launch of its rival Children's BBC in 1985.

CITV logo

On 11 March 2006, CiTV was re-launched as CITV and launched its own channel. At the same time, it got a new logo and a new look. It was created by Red Bee Media.

"The idents feature everyday scenes from a child's world that are then transformed by CITV to something far more fun and extraordinary; sausage and mash comes to life as a Mexican mariachi band, and a tea set becomes a steam train chugging around a tray." - Red Bee Media press release

A new look was introduced in 2009 following an increase in the channel budget.
