LONDON - Brothers and Sisters today released the world's first channel idents filmed in zero gravity, for the National Geographic Channel.

The short films were commissioned to celebrate the channel's upcoming Space Week.

The ad was made by 14 people performing a range of experiments whilst inside a G-Force One airplane.

Each time zero gravity was achieved on the plane, the crew began performing.

One ident shows a collection of pool balls being hit by the cue ball, whilst another shows the crew bursting a balloon filled with water.

Each of the 13 idents also includes the National Geographic's iconic yellow border, which floats weightlessly around the ship.
