Paul Harris opens up BBC One in September 1981, for a morning of programmes for schools and colleges.
Unfortunately, we don’t have the full junction but the clock would’ve been followed by a minute or so of a programme slide for Encounter France, accompanied by music. The one-minute countdown clock would then take over.
