The early hours of 27th December and BBC One is about to head off to bed.
[00:00:00] CLOCK: it didn’t happen very often but in 1983, we had a festive clock. The normal clock was used to introduce the news. As far as we know, this Christmas version only appeared at closedown.
[00:00:25] IDENT: the BBC One Christmas symbol is accompanied by the National Anthem.
