Shine Group

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Shine Group is a conglomerate of media companies, including 29 of them in Europe, North America and Australia. It was created in 2001 on the base of Shine Productions, that was launched in the same year by Elisabeth Murdoch (daughter of the News Corporation owner Rupert Murdoch). In 2011, News Corp. bought Shine Group for $663 million. In December 2014, 21st Century Fox merged Shine with Endemol to form Endemol Shine Group (now Banijay Group.)

1st Logo (2007-2016)

Visuals: There is a golden egg with "SHINE GROUP" at the right followed by the co-production company's name below and a copyright stamp.


  • Most of the time, the text "Based on the format created by Franc Roddam and Shine" can be seen before the Shine Group logo.
  • Sometimes, the co-production company's name or copyright stamp (sometimes both) can be omitted on some shows.

Technique: A still, digital graphic.

Audio: The ending theme of the show.

Availability: Appeared on MasterChef in UK and South Africa, and on early episodes of MasterChef Australia.

2nd Logo (July 8, 2014)

Visuals: On a white background, logos for the company's divisions (Shine France, Heartland, STO-CPH, Meter, Metronome, Shine Germany, Princess Productions, Shine Finland, Lovely Day, Channel Flip and Brown Eyed Boy, among others) zoom out, slowly at first before getting faster. The logos then fade to the shining gold words "SHINE GROUP" with the egg from before to the left side of it. The words then turn flat and gray.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: Whooshing sounds as the logos zoom out, followed by an orchestral note with chimes.

Availability: Only seen in the DMI Productions YouTube channel.
