End of play for the day on BBC Two.
[00:00:00] PROGRAMME PROMOTION: for The Greatest News Party in the World.
Part one airs early on Boxing Day at 12.05am on BBC One.
[00:00:22] CLOCK: with the usual pointer in the direction of national BBC Radio, it’s goodnight from BBC Two.
[00:00:48] IDENT: an announcerless playout of the Shadow ident.
Test tone/GLITS kicks in five seconds after the ident soundtrack is completely faded out. For many years – and up until mid-1995 – there would’ve been a 30-second gap of black and silence prior to test tone.
Test tone will have lasted two minutes here, before the overnight shutdown of the transmitter network was triggered.
