SABC 1 glory

I got captivated by the new SABC 1 theme presentation (for lack of a better name), which is a fusion of computer animation and live footage with reddish filtering, an artistic impression reminding me of the visual landmark that is 300. It's however not nearly as popular or memorable as the previous theme which portrayed South African Black and White people having switched roles (as in White people living in townships and Black people leading a more affluent lifestyle). This, the latter, is an interesting play on the stereotypical both races have on each other and was notably also because of the superb camerawork and some interesting acting. It's interesting as regards the former for I thought the latter couldn't be bettered.
