The last thing BBC Three aired before it moved online

So BBC Three has finally left the airwaves in favour of its new online home.

And as such you might have expected it to sign off in style, following a closing night which paid homage to some of its best-known shows.

But no. In fact the station disappeared from your tessellator's with relatively little fanfare – actually, none at all!

Instead, they simply aired a "classic" episode of Gavin & Stacey, showed a trailer for forthcoming drama Thirteen – coming soon to online – and then bowed out with this message:


And that, BBC Three fans, was it. In fact you'd never have known anything was different to usual if it weren't for the reminder that they'd moved.
To be fair, it did broadcast its last moments at around 4am, with the last programme being the cringe worthy Gavin & Stacey - so chances are you were tucked up in bed and wouldn't have seen it anyway.

During its final night on-air, the channel treated fans to old episodes of Top Gear, Siblings, The Mighty Boosh and Uncle through to "classic" Don't Tell The Bride, Little Britain, and the reason why most people even watch the BBC, Family Guy and American Dad.

They also showed their final ever episode of EastEnders (if only it was the final episode), which is now moving to UKTV's rebanded channel W (formerly known as Watch) for its late evening repeat.

BBC 3 is currently in a limbo state, showing a selection of shows with graphics overlaid on them advertising that BBC Three has moved online.

Here are BBC II!'s final moments on-air:

"Fun House" Theme Song

It's Wacky, it's fun, it's Cr-a-a-a-zy, it's outrageous, it's the Fun House theme tune!:

The British version of Fun House aired on CITV from 1989-99. The game show was hosted by Pat Sharp along with the twin cheerleaders Melanie and Martina Grant, and Gary King as the announcer.

Theme song lyrics to the UK version of Fun House, via Game Shows Wiki:

It's Wacky!
It's Fun!
It's Cr-a-a-a-zy!
It's outrageous!
Fun House,
It's a whole lot of fun,
Prizes to be won!
It's a real crazy show where anything can go!
Fun House,
It's a quiz,
It's a race,
It's a real wacky place!
Use your body and your brain!
If you wanna play the game!

Sony Pictures Consumer Products has unveiled a first-look at one of Sony's logo's to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Ghostbusters in 2019!:

UPDATE: Ghost Corps have confirmed that the logo was created strictly for the licensing event with an official logo still to come:

"Just to clarify, this is not the official 35th logo, it was a logo created out of our new style guide for use at the Licensing Expo to get licensees excited for the event. More plans for the 35th, including an official logo will be announced in the future."


Apologies for the confusion.

SPCP unveiled the logo in a trade supplement for the Las Vegas Licensing Expo 2017.
