FROM THE ARCHIVE OF: The TV Room
The 1.15am BBC Two Northern Ireland junction.
[00:00:00] CLOCK: the standard BBC Two Northern Ireland clock is used to link into Pages from Ceefax.
BBC Northern Ireland found itself with some time to spare ahead of The Learning Zone at 2am, as it had been showing a different schedule to network BBC Two this evening.
The clock seen here uses the original 1991 hardware and not the kit used by the digital playout suites.
[00:00:21] TELETEXT IN-VISION: here we see BBC Northern Ireland’s mid-1980s in-vision Ceefax generator in use.
The music accompanying the Ceefax pages is Kitsch Pop (Chappell CD CHAP205).
Thanks to Andy Evans for the details about the music that accompanies Ceefax here.
