It's different every night - starts approximately around civil twilight time (around 9:20 tonight) but always ends by 6am.

I'm pretty sure that it wasn't just left to restart normally, instead the director would have to recue the clip either every now and then or in the run up to a junction.

This YouTube clip mentions a little about the globe (and the '93 BBC News titles). Seems like there was up to 24 minutes possible on one laserdisc?

And there's a great little story here...

TV Forum: New for (the middle of) 2020

Welcome to a new look! Hope you like it, you'll find everything pretty much in the same place but I think it's a bit fresher. It's also the first time every page has been given a makeover at the same time. A few main bits to note...

  • Private messages have been unshackled after almost 20 years of being in a tiny popup. Messages are also threaded like a topic, rather than the SMS-of-the-'90s vibe we've had until now.
  • As well as the overall vote, Gallery designs are now broken down by individual rating.
  • Dark mode! You can turn it on via your User settings and either have it on all the time, just at night or based on whatever your system settings are. There may be some corners of the site I've forgotten to style, please let me know.
  • Starting today, new members will not immediately have access to Request topics.
    It's a 2-step process, with permission to then be able to post later on. Hopefully this will stop people using this site purely for requests and encourage some more meaningful posts elsewhere.
  • Search: it now works! almost works Sad - exact phrases aren't currently being matched.

I'm sure there will be some bugs in places, I've had a snagging list arms length for a while so at some point I needed to just get it live.
