At 12.47am – in the early hours of Christmas Day – it’s time for BBC Two to close down for the night.
[00:00:00] CLOCK: our recording has missed out the initial seconds of this closedown sequence. We join as announcer Martin King is pointing out some musical offerings on BBC Radio 3 later in the day:
2pm Live from Amsterdam. A Christmas Concert direct from the Concertgebouw.
3.45pm A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols. In King’s College Chapel.
And with that, BBC Two wishes us a Happy Christmas and a very good night.
