The 12pm BBC Two junction.
[00:00:00] IDENT: after a short burst of trade test transmission post-Play School, programmes resume at 12pm with two offerings from the Open University.
As was customary at the start of an OU transmission, we get an animation of the logo, and the OU fanfare (the opening of Divertimento by Leonard Salzedo).
The announcement here would be followed by a couple of minutes of music. The announcer would cut to the OU clock for the duration of this short interlude.
Unfortunately, a portion of this junction is missing on the original recording – but we pick up the action below, with just under a minute-and-a-half of clock and music remaining.
[00:00:00] CLOCK: the musical interval here would’ve been about 2 minutes in total.
[00:01:27] IDENT: a link into the first programme: Parents and Teachers: A New Look.
