Open Mind Productions

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Open Mind Productions is a British television production company founded on 1 June 1989 by Roland Tongue and Chris Ellis.

Logo (1993-2009)

Visuals: On a customized or black background there's a blue head, with it's top being separated from the rest of the head. In between the head, there are the words "OPEN" and "MIND". The word "PRODUCTIONS" can be seen below.


  • An early version exists where the text "An Open Mind Production" is seen below the head.
  • There is a version where the word "An" is seen on the top of the head and the text under the head and below it now reads "PRODUCTION".

Technique: A still, digital graphic.

Audio: The ending theme of the show.

Audio Variants:

  • On some episodes of The Shiny Show, it's silent (because the full closing theme plays only on the show's credits and then a short sequence from the show came before the logo appears).
    • On the season one episode "Fire Station", the fire engine sound was heard during the closing theme.
    • On the season one episode "Fun in the Fair", the funfair music plays throughout the credits.
    • On the season two episode "Cheesemaking", the last part of the closing theme plays after the sequence that interrupts the credits (similar to "Hairdressers").
      • On Polish prints of that episode, there is a Polish voice-over after the closing theme.
  • On Ready Set Learn, the announcer was heard while the instrumental version of The Paz Show theme plays.
  • On the Numberjacks season two episode "Counting Down to Christmas", an ominous bell note plays over the closing theme's last note.

Availability: Appears on The Number Crew, Rat-A-Tat-Tat, The Word Machine, Maths Mansion, The Shiny Show, Paz and Numberjacks.
