[00:00:00] IDENT: a BBC TV logo from the 1950s – first seen in 1953 in fact. Announcer Michael Maine informs us that we’ll round off the week of celebrations for 60 years of the BBC by closing in the same way that the BBC TV Service did in the 50s, to the closing strings of The Television March by Eric Coates.

[00:00:37] IDENT: the familiar BBC One globe symbol (albeit with ’60 Years’ logo), accompanied by the National Anthem.
