FROM THE ARCHIVE OF: NC1
A standard closedown from Central in the days before 24-hour programme schedules.
Though technically, Central stayed on the air overnight, filling the non-programme hours up to TV-am with Central Jobfinder – a teletext-based job information service.
[00:00:00] GRAPHIC: weather summary.
[00:00:25] GRAPHIC: used to promote overnight programming on local independent radio stations.
[00:00:42] GRAPHIC: promoting the overnight teletext-based Jobfinder service.
[00:01:05] IDENT: the “Good Night” ident used at closedown each night.
[00:01:38] TELETEXT IN-VISION: the opening Jobfinder page. Does anyone out there know what kit was used to produce these pages? The page number seemed to vary – and the pages did not seem to come from the Oracle service.
