A weekend of programming dedicated to Doctor Who comes to an end and Galaxy is closing down, with a nice long play for the channel’s ident.

[00:00:00] PROGRAMME: the closing seconds of Doctor Who Weekend.

[00:00:06] IDENT: announcer Trish Bertram brings Doctor Who Weekend to a close. With a name check also for presentation director (and Doctor Who devotee) Simon Dore, it’s goodnight from Galaxy.

The ident is the work of Martin Lambie-Nairn.

After the fade to black, we believe some of the black and silence has been edited out of our recording.

[00:00:41] TEST CARD: quite possibly the slowest fade up of a test card we’ve ever seen. The BSB channels each had their own version of this test card design, which is loosely based on the Philips PM5544.
