Occasionally inconsequential things offer a window into another world and another time. Last year I mentioned how a Sunday morning closedown from 1974 “filled” by black screen was a reminder of how Sundays were not working days.
At the start of the year, BBC Two added ‘Channel of the Year’ text on many of its idents. It looks as though the new versions were created using the original masters. And that’s a problem in some cases.
