Logo: The first one or two seconds shows a cloudy background similar to what was used on the Television logo of the time, with the words "DISTRIBUTED BY" appearing first. After that, it cuts to the 1995 TCFTV logo placed in the middle of the screen, with the animation slowed down, but more or less complete with the News Corp. byline, and under that is the words "INTERNATIONAL TELEVISION".

Technique: The Distributed By screen and the animation of the TCFTV logo, but slower.

Music/Sounds: The 1995 TCFTV fanfare.

Availability: Seen on the short-lived Sci-Fi Channel (now Syfy) series The Chronicle: News from the Edge. This replaces the 1992 20th Television logo used on original American prints.

Legacy: This logo has a redundant oversight, with "International Television" being under the whole TCFT logo, making it read "20th Century Fox Television International Television" (not counting the News Corporation byline). Other than that, it's an interesting logo which was sadly only used on one show.
