A snippet of one of the bespoke channel test cards used by British Satellite Broadcasting in 1990.
[00:00:00] TEST CARD: BSB created bespoke test cards for each of its channels – loosely based on the Philips PM5544 design. It also used the Test Card F idea of a picture of a person, framed in a circle.
The overall image was likely to have originated from a Quantel image store – rather than being generated by a dedicated box of electronics like the PM5544 and the BBC’s version of Test Card F.
Can you identify the girl pictured in this test card?
