Most of the one-minute countdown into a schools programme on ITV. Not sure of the precise date though.

[00:00:00] COUNTDOWN: the familiar mechanical countdown clock used by ITV Schools from 1978 until 1987.

In this case, counting down to Insight.

The track accompanying the countdown is Spring to Life 2.

[00:00:57] IDENT: Yorkshire TV pre-programme ident. It seems like a newer version of the Yorkshire TV ident and fanfare was overlaid over the original here – but we still catch the tail end of the old fanfare.
