From the early hours of Christmas Day, this is BBC Two closing down at the end of its Christmas Eve schedule.

[00:00:00] IDENT: the BBC Two Tin Toy Christmas ident gets played out in full – all 55 seconds. And no clock at closedown.

As is customary at this point, the announcer reminds us about the overnight offerings on BBC national radio.

Apologies for the brief dip in sound when the announcer is speaking – not sure if this is a tape issue or a transmission fault.

The animation was by Joan Ashford and Martin Pullen at 3 Peach Animation. Music Sculptors provided the soundtrack.
