1st Logo
<img align="bottom" alt="Magnetic Video (UK) (1979)" height="175" src="" title="Magnetic Video (UK) (1979)" width="233"/><iframe frameborder="0" height="175" src="" width="220"></iframe>

Nicknames: "The (Still) M-Circle", "(Still) Mirrored M-Circle"

Logo: On a buff background, we see the "Mirrored M" (in two shades of brown) from the American Magnetic Video logo behind the words "MAGNETIC VIDEO" in a white Microgramma Bold font, set in the center of the screen.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Very scarce. It might be spotted on eBay UK (or any country's website where PAL tapes are sold, like Australia and Germany). It was seen on the PAL releases of The Making of Star Wars and 100 Rifles.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo
<img align="bottom" alt="Magnetic Video (UK) (1980) A" height="175" src="" title="Magnetic Video (UK) (1980) A" width="233"/><img align="bottom" alt="Magnetic Video (UK) (1980) B" height="175" src="" title="Magnetic Video (UK) (1980) B" width="233"/>
<iframe frameborder="0" height="175" src="" width="220"></iframe>

Nickname: "Magnetic Text"

Logo: On a black background, we see the text "Magnetic Video" in red on the top of the screen. Below that, we see the copyright notice in yellow text. Suddenly, the screen changes on the same black background, and the text is changed to look something like this:

Magnetic Video
A Twentieth Century-Fox Company

with "Magnetic Video" in red on the top and the byline "A Twentieth Century-Fox Company" below in white. The whole text is set in the middle of the screen. The text stays on the screen for a few seconds before it fades out.

FX/SFX: None. Just the text changing.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Extremely rare. Tapes with this logo might turn up on eBay UK (or other sites) sometime. The Magnetic pre-cert release of Alien might have this.

Editor's Note: None.
