BBC One has to resort to Ceefax for an ident for its early morning Open University transmission.
[00:00:00] IDENT: we suspect this was very soon after the 18th February launch of BBC One’s new on-screen presentation – perhaps even the morning of 24th February 1985 – and that the updated Open University symbol wasn’t yet ready.
In the absence of a proper OU ident, NC1 seems to have called upon Ceefax to provide a special headerless page, to help them introduce their early morning OU programmes.
