1st Logo

WARNING: Do not watch if you are prone to seizures.

Nickname: "Greek Fire Alarm"

Logo: On a blue background, many yellow letters and outlines are seen in extreme close-up and warp into the BG. As the progress slows down, the outlines and letters stop warping, forming the logo. The logo itself consists in two rectangle outlines with "MTC", with some slashs next to "M", in the upper box, and "video" in the bottom box.

FX/SFX: The logo warping.

Music/Sounds: A dramatic synth arpeggio with another synth playing a repeating low 5-note theme, which music is the final part of the stock music "Electrosonic IDs And Logos #6" composed by Richard Sanders. Like the ATC ID from 1979, the music was been very low-pitched and slowed-down, albeit differently.

Availability: Seen on old Greek VHS tapes.

Editor's Note: None.

Logo: On a space background, three red lines from thinnest to thickest fly in and flash and settle. A giant blue 3D object flies in rotating 360 degrees. At it's middle point, the object flips to it's top and rotates 90 degrees, revealing it's MTC text from before. The logo flashes, becoming metallic and "video" in white is wipe in by a light. A large blue streaked border is wiped in. The border disappears and two blue boxes with white outlines appear behind the logo, The MTC logo turns sky blue, and the stars disappear. The logo zoom in.

FX/SFX: Early CGI.

Music/Sounds: A funky rock tune.

Availability: Seen on old Greek VHS tapes. Also spotted on some Greek Inspector Gadget tapes. If you do not live in Greece, go there and find a tape with a MTC print on it. Or, eBay is always an option.
