DR1 is a Danish television channel, belonging to the public broadcaster DR. Until the 1980s it was the only television channel in Denmark and was known as DR TV, and from 1987 to 1994, it was known as 1'eren to symbolize its logo. However, in 1994, it was renamed to DR TV1 and then later, in 1996, it was known as DR1 as its current name.

After the introduction of DR's first corporate logo in 1964, the Danish national TV channel changed its name from Danmarks Radio TV to DR TV and were able to adopt DR's first corporate logo. From 1987 to 1994, the channel was known as 1'eren, despite its channel name.
In 1994, DR TV changed its name to DR TV1 and introduced a new logo with a large "1" within a TV screen. The official name was still DR TV, but this was the last logo to wear DR's 1964 logo scheme and also to carry the DR TV brand, because this logo is typically short-lived for 2 years.

At the same time, DR started its second television channel DR2, so this means that an identity relaunch was about to occure for all of DR, and the new corporate logo was updated. The first channel which was officially changed its name from DR TV1 to DR1 was relaunched with a new look and new programmes.

DR1 introduced a completely new look in 2002.
An update to this look, featuring brighter colours, was introduced on December 1, 2003.
On June 1, 2005, DR adopted a new corporate logo, and all its services had their logos updated accordingly. The 2003 look was kept but had the logo replaced.
Initially, the DR1 and DR2 logos were shown in black-and-white when not on screen. A few months later it was decided that in print and on the web, the channel logos would have permanent colours. The DR1 logo would be pink and the DR2 logo would be turqoise.
In 2006, DR moved to a new building and switched to widescreen transmission. Hence, DR1 and DR2 got new looks again. The idents for DR1 featured mirror balls with the DR1 logo on red or gray background.
In preparation for the digital switchover, DR1 and DR2 got new looks on September 1, 2009. The DR wordmark is now consistently white in a black box on all channel logos.
The idents for DR1 feature a big mirror-ball that floats around Denmark.
