[00:00:00] TEST CARD: this type of festive addition to the test card was common in the 1970s and 1980s.

The countdown timer shows ‘2’ – which means 3 minutes to go until the test card disappears and the channel gets ready to put some programmes to air.

Can you identify the festive Ceefax tape playing here?
