[00:00:00] IDENT: what appears to be an unplanned late-night OU transmission on BBC One comes to an end.

[00:00:10] CLOCK: and hot on the heels of the OU programme, BBC One now closes down in the conventional manner.

No signposting of BBC Radio 2 as was generally customary at closedown – just a quick goodnight from the announcer.

[00:00:37] IDENT: the usual COW ident accompanied by the National Anthem to bring proceedings to a close for the day.
