It’s shortly after 1am on Christmas Day and BBC One is closing down for the night.
[00:00:00] PROGRAMME MENU GRAPHIC: our recording starts as the announcer is already more than halfway through the programme listing on this graphic.
Somewhat unusually, the programmes being highlighted here are for the morning. It was much more common for the closedown preview of the next day’s programmes to cover the evening programme line-up.
[00:00:22] CLOCK: with the usual reminder that BBC Radio 2 is on air through the night, it’s goodnight from BBC One.
[00:00:51] IDENT: the Christmas BBC One symbol is accompanied by the National Anthem.
