Native Television (Russia)

Background: Родной Телевидение (known as Native Television in English) is a Russian television company founded in 1986 by Ismail Balabanov and Sebastian Golubov. The company din't made TV shows/movies at the time until 1989. In the 1990's, the company announced that they're making regional channels to air on Russian states.

1st Logo
(1989-1990)


Nickname: "Early Родной", "The Personification Of All That Is Cheesy"

Logo: On a black background with a blue pipe surface, we see the word "
Родной" zooming and flipping. It goes up, and an outlined orange circle with a 1 inside zooms in. It stops, and the 1 starts flipping like Родной.

FX/SFX/Cheese Factor: Very poor CGI, like it was done on old Soviet computers. Of course, this logo is also cheesy due to the choice of music...

Music/Sounds: The Lorimar-Telepictures theme.

Availability: Extinct. Native's shows at the time were simple game/talk shows, which now can't be aired on other TV networks. The only way to find it is on tape-trading.

Scare Factor: Minimal bordering on low; this logo is just blatant and cheesy.



2nd Logo
(1990)

Nicknames: "
Родной 1", "The Clapperboard"

Logo: On a black background, we see a clapperboard with the words "
Родной" and "1" stacked together inside. It claps and shines.

Variant: A different variant is seen on Место, where the clapperboard is 3D and rotates before clapping and shining. The shine looks more realistic, and the 1 zooms to the center of the screen, getting out of the clapperboard.

FX/SFX:
The clapperboard, the shine. The Место variant is different.

Cheesy Factor:
The animation/text looks extremely outdated, and the shine looks fake, making it even worse than the previous logo. The Место variant is better, but it looked like it was made with low-budget computer graphics.

Music/Sounds: A quick bass tune with the sound of clapping. If you hear closely, you can hear people laughing.

Availability: Extinct, and it's more harder to find due to it's short lifespan. Check some old russian TV tapes.

Scare Factor: Low to medium; it's a very dark and ugly logo, but somewhat harmless.
