FROM THE ARCHIVE OF: The TV Room
BBC Two takes a short breather prior to The Learning Zone.
[00:00:00] SERVICE PROMOTION: for the Films section of the BBC Online website.
[00:00:14] PROGRAMME GRAPHIC: standard BBC Two slide design for Manhattan Murder Mystery.
The film airs tomorrow night on BBC Two at 12.10am.
[00:00:32] PROGRAMME PROMOTION: for Waking the Dead.
The programme airs on Monday at 9pm on BBC One and continues on Tuesday at 9pm.
[00:01:04] IDENT: one of the standard BBC Two idents – Swan – is used to link into Pages from Ceefax.
[00:01:21] TELETEXT IN-VISION: a half-hour Pages from Ceefax slot begins with the usual front slide.
When the Ceefax generator appears, it’s frozen at 9.22pm – just over 5 hours earlier. This was the time that BBC Television Centre was struck down by a power failure.
Note also that the page is positioned (vertically) further down the screen than usual.
After nine minutes or so – at 2.37am – an alternative Ceefax generator is put to air. And this one works.
Our clip ends a little over a minute later.
