Paul Harris opens up BBC One in September 1981, for a morning of programmes for schools and colleges.
[00:00:00] CLOCK: the mechanical clock survived the OSP refresh in early September. It would be replaced by an electronic device in December.
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.
