The 6.50am BBC Two junction.
[00:00:00] TEST CARD: the new BBC Two logo makes its on air debut – on the test card.
The logo is noticeably horizontally off-centre – and remained that way until the channel’s next new logo came along in October 1997.
[00:00:20] IDENT: the new BBC Two/Open University ident is aired for the first time. The sequence was played off laserdisc.
The announcer would’ve went on to play some music, prior to the first programme being put to air – however, our recording ends after the initial announcement.
