Background

Euston Films was a British film and television company, originally formed by Thames Television, and headed by Lloyd Shirley, George Taylor and Brian Tester in 1971. It didn't use a logo until the early 1990s. The company went defunct in 1994, barely a year after Thames lost its ITV franchise. The company was revived in 2014 by FremantleMedia, who is the current owner of Thames.

1st Logo (1990-1994)
