Special lighting arrangements for the final airing of the Christmas ident.
[00:00:00] CLOCK: this temporary modification of the colour scheme on the clock was used at closedown only during the Christmas period. When used to link into the news, the normal colour arrangement was used.
Apologies, but we don’t have the full announcement over the clock.
[00:00:11] IDENT: the Christmas ident is accompanied by the National Anthem. On this occasion – the final airing – the lighting is darker than usual, with a simulation of the moon.
As the National Anthem comes to an end, the main lighting is faded out, leaving only the silhouette of the snowmen/snowwoman against the moon.
