[00:00:00] TEST CARD: the electronically generated form of Test Card F had been introduced in May. However, it was a number of months before the proper channel logos were added to the test card.

Our first sighting of the striped ‘BBC 1’ logo on the test card was in October.

Can you identify the music track that accompanies the test card here?
