FROM THE ARCHIVE OF: Dave Baldwin

Announcer Peter Bolgar closes down BBC One for the night.

This is from the period in 1982 where BBC Pres updated the ‘BBC 1’ logo on the ident to match the size of the logo on the clock.

However, by autumn 1982, the logo on the ident was increased in size again.

Not quite sure what happened here during the transition between the clock and the globe – a vision mixing glitch of some sort. It was also more usual to cut/mix to the globe at 15/30/45/00 seconds.
