Logo (1980s)

Visuals: On a blue background that is black at the bottom and the top, there is a 7x6 grid made of white lines. A picture of an illustration of several ancient people; a picture of a portrait of William Shakespeare; a picture of an assortment of paintings, sculptures, etc.; and a picture of an illustration of a mountain (all of the pictures have white borders) fly in from the left, the right, the bottom left, and the top right, respectively. Each one flies into its own square on the grid. As this is happening and after it happens, several more photos of illustrations, paintings, etc. appear, each filling up their own square. This creates a checkerboard pattern of squares that have pictures in them and squares that do not. The words


in yellow appear fade in in the middle of the screen. Immediately after this happens, the grid and the pictures fade away. After this happens, the word:
