The 6.40am BBC One junction.
[00:00:00] TEST CARD: the new BBC One logo makes its on air debut – on the test card.
The logo is slightly horizontally off-centre – and remained that way until the channel’s next new logo came along in October 1997.
[00:00:21] IDENT: the new BBC One/Open University ident is aired for the first time. The sequence was played off laserdisc.
Announcer Mark Develin seems impressed by the new ident: “It’s quite good looking, don’t you think?”
The announcer plays some music to take us up to the first of two OU programmes: Special Needs in Education.
