The 2.30pm BBC Two junction and a portion of the 2.55pm junction.
[00:00:00] PROGRAMME GRAPHIC: standard BBC Two slide for Shakespeare in Perspective.
Music is played until the programme is due to start. Can you identify the track playing here?
Note the presence of the striped ‘2’ on this slide – even though this design would only be introduced on the channel’s ident in June 1979. The new ‘2’ logo was phased in on slides from late-1978.
Note this is not a ‘Followed Shortly’ version of the slide, as would normally be the case in this scenario.
