Thorn EMI HBO Video logo

Logo: Against two "walls" of purple lights, the words "THORN" and "EMI" fly from the top and bottom of the screen towards the top. A purple "HBO" logo appears, and we see it "O" first (through the hole). It joins a white rectangle that has appeared in the middle of the logo. The word "VIDEO" drops from the bottom of the rectangle, the "O" in the "HBO" logo gets the circle in its hole, and two white "comets" streak past the top and bottom of the logo, leaving two white lines. The background then turns blackberry-coloured.

FX/SFX: The "flying" words. Which aren't as good looking as the logo by HBO/Cannon Video, which looks better even though it was copied from this.

Music/Sounds: Same as the 1982 Thorn-EMI Video logo.

Availability: Appears on later collections of Ready, Steady, Go, the first release of Rambo: First Blood Part II, and the last few editions of the cartoon series mentioned on the Thorn-EMI Video page. Also distributed HBO's original product, as well as Tri-Star, Thames, and Orion. The first releases to use this logo were The Sleeping Beauty and Manon Lescaut, both of which use the Thorn-EMI print logo on the labels and packaging.

Scare Factor: Same as the 1982 Thorn-EMI Video logo.
