The Christmas morning transition from TV-am to YTV.
[00:00:00] PRODUCTION ENDBOARD: a brief glimpse of the copyright board at the end of the TV-am transmission.
[00:00:02] IDENT: after switching the transmitters to YTV (with minimal picture disturbance), the Yorkshire TV ‘serving six million viewers’ ident appears.
The announcer wishes viewers a Happy Christmas.
It looks as though the transmission controller leaves the ident on screen a little too long and the recording runs out on air. Seems odd that the recording would be quite so short.
[00:00:25] GRAPHIC: a brief glimpse of the slide for the local weather.
The recording ends before the announcer starts reading the weather.
