Three of the original British Satellite Broadcast channels survived the merger with Sky in November 1990 (initially at least): The Sports Channel; The Movie Channel; The Power Station. They retained their respective test cards for a number of months – albeit tweaked.

[00:00:00] TEST CARD: the original British Satellite Broadcasting test cards were adjusted slightly following the merger with Sky.

The BSB logo was removed, as was the channel logo. Generic ‘BRITISH SKY BROADCASTING’ branding was added at the bottom.

The greyscale rectangles were moved to the upper-third area.

Can you identify the girl pictured in this test card?
