FROM THE ARCHIVE OF: The TV Room
A 1950s black and white film – part of a short season of American detective stories – brings BBC Two to a close for another day.
[00:00:00] PROGRAMME: the closing sequence for the film, City that Never Sleeps.
[00:00:26] PROGRAMME GRAPHIC: standard BBC Two slide for The Human Jungle.
The short season of American detective stories continues tomorrow night at 12.30am.
[00:00:43] PROGRAMME PROMOTION: for Assignment.
The programme airs tomorrow at 7.45pm on BBC Two.
[00:01:21] CLOCK: with a reminder about the overnight services on offer on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 2, it’s goodnight from BBC Two.
No announcerless ident after the clock tonight. Announcer Reg Sanders would soon begin playing an ident at closedown on a regular basis – there had been some examples of this the previous year.
Curiously, the previous evening, Reg used an ident instead of the clock at closedown.
