[00:00:00] IDENT: David Allan introduces The Old Grey Whistle Test – a live broadcast from the stage of the Rainbow Theatre in London. Introduced by Bob Harris.

The ‘2’ design seen here bears no resemblance to the standard ‘2’ logo of the time, which was made up of a series of horizontal lines.

The logo seen here seems to be a coloured perspex cut-out, sat on a revolving turntable.

This is an edited, looped version of the ident broadcast in this junction.
