A bit of in-vision continuity to end the day on S4C, courtesy of Siân Lloyd.

We believe this recording is from September 1985 – assuming S4C was showing episodes of Berlin Alexanderplatz on the same dates as Channel 4.

Although its London counterpart launched with an electronic clock in November 1982, S4C utilised this mechanical device until spring 1987.
