Thames was formed from the joint venture of British Electric Traction (BET) and ABPC (later Thorn EMI) which replaced Rediffusion.
The arguably most famous Thames logo was created with the switch to colour in 1969 by Minale Tattersfield. It remained in use for twenty years with only minor changes.
A special 21st anniversary ident, with 'XXI' donating '21' in Roman Numerals.
Having lost the London Channel 3 licence in 1992 and replaced by Carlton, Thames Television continued as an independent production company.
