OSP Category: Programme Graphic

A graphic containing a visual from a programme – as well as the programme title. Typically used to promote the programme or provide information about the programme – via the continuity announcer. This type of graphic is also often referred to as a slide (pre-1990s, it was common for these graphics to originate on 35mm slides).
