1st Logo (April 13, 1995-December 24, 1998)

Logo: On a gold background, there is a red circle which is split in two. Between the two halves, we see the text "WORKING TITLE" in Compacta BT, and the bottom half of the circle has "TELEVISION" in a white Times New Roman font on it. A copyright notice with the year in white and "WORKING TITLE TV Ltd" in black, all in Compacta BT, is located below the circle.

Technique: None.

Music/Sounds: The ending theme of the preceeding show.

Availability: This is seen on The Baldy Man episodes.

2nd Logo (March 18, 2000-August 25, 2007)

Logo: Same as the last logo, but there are some differences. "TELEVISION" is removed, "WORKING TITLE" is replaced by "WTTV" in a stretched out white Times New Roman font, and the background is black.

Variants:

  • On co-produced shows mainly for BBC, the logo would say "A WTTV Production for BBC", with the respective logos in the place of the company names, and a copyright to Universal Television or Universal Television and BBC below.
  • Would appear in all white on The Last of the Blonde Bombshells.

Technique: The fade-in or none.

Music/Sounds: None or the ending theme of the preceeding TV movie.

Availability: Uncommon. This is seen on the HBO film The Last of the Blonde Bombshells, the 2000 UK revival of Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased), and two Lifetime Television movies Cyber Seduction: His Secret Life and The Murder of Princess Diana, occasionally seen on Lifetime and Lifetime Movie Network.

3rd Logo (April 1, 2007-May 24, 2009)

Logo: On a black background, we see a white in-credit version of the Working Title Films logo.

Technique: None.

Music/Sounds: The ending theme of the preceeding show.

Availability: Rare. It was last seen on reruns of the first three seasons of The Tudors on Audience Network. It's also seen on the DVD releases.

4th Logo (April 11-June 20, 2010)

Logo: On a black background, we see the 2008 Working Title Films logo.

Technique: None.

Music/Sounds: Same as above.

Availability: Rare. It was last seen on reruns of the final season of The Tudors on Audience Network. It's also seen on the DVD release.

5th Logo (June 2, 2011-)

Logo: A sped-up version of the current movie logo, except the circle is already formed and flips over with the name sliding out into place. "WTTV" in small spaced-out letters is shown below.

Variants

  • A still variant exists since 2012.
  • Sometimes the logo is shared with other logos.
  • An alternate variant without the words "WTTV" exists like the theatrical counterpart, where its just the 2008 logo.

Technique: 3D computer animation.

Music/Sounds: The ending theme or none.

Availability: Current.

  • The animated variant was only shown on the short-lived Love Bites on NBC.
  • The still variant first appeared on First Love and Yonderland, and has appeared on their new shows such as Hanna, the TV adaptation of About A Boy, You, Me and The Apocalypse, London Spy, the new version of Tales of the City, and Gypsy, among others.
  • The alternate variant was seen on We Are Lady Parts and Everything I Know About Love.
