FROM THE ARCHIVE OF: NC1
The networked News at One was taken off the air by a strike by members of the National Union of Journalists at ITN.
[00:00:00] GRAPHIC: announcer Colin Lamont lets viewers know about an impending programme change.
[00:00:09] CLOCK: slightly curious as to why the clock was used here. In normal circumstances, the clock would’ve been used to introduce the news – fairly standard TV presentation practice in the UK at the time. But the news wasn’t being shown today due to the strike.

Thanks to Colm O'Rourke for identifying the announcer.
