The Incorporated Television Company (ITC) was a British television distribution company founded by television mogul Lew Grade in 1954 as the distribution unit of ATV (AssociatedTeleVision), one of the ITV franchises; it later branched out into TV series and feature film production. In 1995, PolyGram Filmed Entertainment acquired ITC Entertainment Group. PolyGram was later acquired by Seagram and Sons on December 10, 1998. In January 1999, Carlton Communications acquired the ITC library. Most of the ITC library, with certain exceptions (The Dark Crystal is held by Universal with Sony Pictures Entertainment handling video rights, and The Evil That Men Do is owned by co-distributor Tri-Star Pictures through Sony Pictures Entertainment), is now owned by ITV Studios Global Entertainment, a subsidiary of ITV plc.


Info Edit

On a dark blue space background, three diamonds appear, red, green, and blue respectively, "interlocked" within each other and spinning around like a top. From the center of the screen, a white ITC logo, designed much like last time but now turned slightly upward, zooms out and quickly moves to the left side, as the word "ENTERTAINMENT" appears alongside. At the end of the logo, the ITC logo fades out to make room for the word "Presents", the ending version is similar, but has the word "FROM" next to the logo with no "Presents" following it. When introduced in 1973, the ITC logo zooms into the center of the screen after which either the word "PRESENTS", "PRODUCTION", or "DISTRIBUTION" pop up under it before the sequence fades out. It was replaced with the more familiar version by 1977.

Scare FactorEdit

Medium to Nightmare. The scary music (which is the same composed by Jack Parnell from the previous as before, but a bit louder), creepy design, and the seizure-laden (though may not look as seizure-laden on some point of view) background make this an unsuspecting fear factor, and the scare factor might increase to High to Nightmare if you see it twice at both the start and very end. None for the in-credit version. Nonetheless, This logo is a favorite of those who grew up with classic ITC shows like Space: 1999, UFO, The Prisoner, The Muppet Show, Thunderbirds and other cult action/science fiction/fantasy shows or films such as The Dark Crystal, The Last Unicorn, and Saturn 3. Contrary to scariness, American kids of the era (70's and 80's, mostly due to the association with Space 1999 and The Muppet Show) often frequently looked forward to seeing the opening ITC logo as it was often regarded as a precursor of a very cool show to follow.
