TVP1 is the main public television channel of Poland's national broadcaster, Telewizja Polska (TVP). It was launched on October 25, 1952 and is the first Polish channel to be broadcast.
1st Logo (1976-1985)
Logo: On a black background, a conjoined "TP" can be seen in the middle of the screen, with the letters being white and red respectively. Above it is "TELEWIZJA POLSKA" and below it is "PROGRAM". There is a "1" near the bottom as well.
2nd Logo (1985-1987)
Logo: On a yellow-green gradient background, a gray sphere zooms in, while a rainbow made of various shades of blue comes in from the top. Another rainbow, made of red, orange and yellow shades, comes in from the bottom. While the sphere zooms in, the rainbows wrap around the sphere, encapsulating it when it stops. The rainbows then revolve around the sphere's axis, resulting in them resting at a much flatter angle, and move away from the sphere. The T1P logo (a conjoined " tP" in green, with a darker green " 1" in between them and completing the "P", and a blue outline) then appears and zooms in on the sphere, while the sphere itself zooms in. As it zooms in, the rainbows return and wrap around the sphere, covering the background, while the sphere's lighting moves.
- When used at closedowns, the background is instead a starry sky.
- A still card with the logo on a plain-colored background is sometimes used. Only B&W footage of this exists.
Technique: The sphere zooming in, the lines drawing and curving.
Music/Sounds: Starts with a reverbing synth note that acts on loop for a few seconds, which then turns into a somber synth tune with a extended last note.
Legacy: A surprising use of CGI during the PRL era of Poland, although it is very subpar.
3rd Logo (1987-1990)
Logo: On a very dark blue background, a star flashes in the top left corner. Another one flashes in the bottom right, and a final one in the middle. A bright flash then appears, revealing a white model of "t1p", in bold outlines with the "1" being represented as a thick outline between the letters. The logo then begins to zoom out along with a rounded square outline. Both the logo and outline then rotate to the right, before turning back around to the left. The border then zooms in as a single star appears on the logo.
- A variant exists where the logo fades in on the bottom left corner of a violet background with stars shining occassionally.
- A extremely rare variant exists where the animation is very different. The logo starts off with the logo flashing, but the flash is much brighter, and a bit slower as well, and it just fades out. The model then zooms out and begins to rotate at least 270 degrees. The square then appears and it flips away. However, the square flips in again, but this time there is the T1P logo on the top left corner, in white with an orange line representing the "1", almost like a programming menu. It then quickly flips out and the normal square outline flips in and finally zooms into the camera.
- Another extremely rare variant has the logo playing out as normal, but the "programming menu" is depicted the flip out and flip in of the logo, with the model poorly aligned among the corner.
- A still version exists, with the logo in white on a blue/black background. Its size differs, and even has a variant with an orange line and many vertical bars cut through the logo. A yellow logo was also used.
Technique: The stars and logo appearing, the model and frame rotating.
Music/Sounds: Silence can be heard in the beginning, after which the previous ident's theme plays (barring the synth note at the beginning).
Availability: Extinct. The variant may have been seen after continuity announcements.
Legacy: Compared to the previous logo, its a massive downgrade in both tech and appearance. It almost looks like a B&W logo, too.
4th Logo (1989-1992)
Logo: On a dark blue background, a prism zooms in and a beam of light comes from near the top right corner and into the prism. A rainbow flies out of the prism. The prism, beam of light, and rainbow disappear as the rainbow slides to the bottom of the screen. We then cut to a black-blue gradient background with a floor. A 3D rainbow-colored "1" draws itself in as the glass letters "T" and "P" zoom in and a white outline materializes around the "1". The logo sparkles and the background changes to a dark blue gradient background.
- A extremely rare version exists where it starts off on a white background and has a multicolored scribble being drawn in. When it finishes, it flips out like a page and reveals the final result.
- A still version with the logo on a blue background exists. It appears to be hand painted.
Technique: 2D animation.
Music/Sounds: A gloomy, yet soothing synth bell tune, with a 3-note flourish.
Availability: Extinct. The variant may have been used before children's programming.
Legacy: A very poorly-animated logo compared to the previous logo
5th Logo (March 14, 1992-1993)
Logo: We see an orange, green, or blue background with a cloud-like pattern and a light mark going diagonally across the screen that slowly rotates around. The background then suddenly splits into 32 squares that spin as a sky background in the same color is revealed. Four of the squares fly off-screen and leave a bright space as the other squares form into a different arrangement of the background. The bright space then turns into the new TVP1 logo, which is "TVP" in an angular font, with each letter in a white square with a blue outline and the squares connected to a blue square with a "1" in it. The background continues to rotate as a radial pair of lights shine across the logo.
- Sometimes, the logo would stop as soon as the flash died down.
- During a brief time in 1992, the logo features the number "40" in lilac rotating above the logo, in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the channel. It used the blue background variant.
- Sometimes, a still version may be used. It may be a still shot of the final result, the logo in black on an orange background, or white on a dark blue band that's brighter on the edges.
Technique: The squares splitting and forming again, the logo being revealed.
Music/Sounds: Starts off with a rising chorus, followed by a string synth tune, before ending off with rising piano notes and a orchestral bang. A laid-back guitar (or bell synth) theme plays after, with its arrangement differing from time to time.
Legacy: The animation is an improvement over its predecessors.
6th Logo (1993)
Logo: On a strangely-textured background, a thick blue line is seen in the middle, along with a thin purple line on the left and a yellow line on the right. The camera zooms out and the lines are revealed to be 3 large "C"s that start to converge into a rotating ring. The TVP1 logo in turquoise comes in from the right, and the camera zooms up to it, causing the ring to stop moving.
Technique: The ring spinning, the logo coming in. Rarely, the logo is still.
Music/Sounds: There are 2 variants:
- Some ride cymbals, then some descending synth notes, ending with a chorus singing "Jedynka!"
- A funkier beat with the chorus singing a "Jedynka"-like tune.
7th Logo (1993-1995)
Logo: On a purple background, we see a large glass tube with four translucent teal bands circling up it. Parts inside the tube constantly move up and down, and the bands have each letter of "TVP1" on them. Bubbles are also seen flying around. The camera then tilts and zooms out, putting the tube in a vertical state. The TVP1 logo in yellow, without the letters, then slides in from the right and the letters appear in sync with the music, and the "1" filling in. The logo then stops as the bands form "TVP1" vertically.
- Much like the previous logo, a still card of the logo is used sometimes.
- A different short version had a black background with a light blue strange object in the distance. 2 flat teal/purple rings are seen rotating along as the TVP1 logo rises up to the sky. A shorter version of the tune is used.
- A Christmas variant had a forest covering much of the logo, with the TVP1 logo fading in over it at the end. The trees also sparkle.
- A extended version had a longer rendition of the tune at the end when it's formed, while a pattern of TVP1 logos fly over the background.
Technique: The tube spinning, the logo sliding in and forming up.
Music/Sounds: A synth piano tune, with bells playing in sync with the letters appearing.

16th Logo (2012-2015)
Logo: We see a green background full of random things in a kaleidoscopic effect. Then, a blue circle with the TVP1 logo and the JEDYNKA word appears, and it swaps with another blue circle with the number 1 on it a few seconds later.
Music/Sounds: A reverb chord fading in, then a xylophone melody.
