A strike leaves BBC Two viewers with a caption and music.
[00:00:00] GRAPHIC: international golf coverage is blacked out by an industrial dispute.
In its place, BBC Two broadcast this apology caption, accompanied by music from the Ceefax/test card tapes. In this excerpt, we hear a track from the Mon Bijoux tape – it’s called Dream of a Lifetime by Henry Mancini.
With thanks to Ash Sowerby for identifying the music.
