The presence of a programme menu in an early morning junction might suggest a start-up but that’s not the case here.

BBC Two opened up five minutes earlier, with a short programme featuring carol singers at Ely Cathedral. But that junction did not include a programme menu – it was straight to ident (out of Pages from Ceefax) and into the programme.
