Valleys rugby ground to bridge cultures.
The scene shows rugby players wearing black and red shirts, and performing the Haka - a traditional Maori challenge - but actors play most of them.
The clip will be launched tomorrow.
In the search for something more vibrant and cosmopolitan, the BBC selected a series of eight scenes or "idents".
Others feature dancers dressed in red and white performing the Capoeira, a Brazilian dance, on a rooftop against a London backdrop.
Another shows tap dancers bringing the Littlebrook Power Station near Dartford, Kent, to life.
The new idents are designed to bridge cultures and appeal to everyone. All incorporate the colour red, as the channel's signature colour, to match a new on-screen red and white logo.
