Same time as Humberside then. Which everyone hated. And has now been out of existence for longer than it existed.

When the BBC began using Aston machines for end credit rolls, they couldn't include their logo until they acquired the Linotype Audio Pi font towards the end of 1984 - the character map was primarily German TV station logos, including the then-new one for ARD Das Erste, and also had 'B' and 'C' lozenges so the contemporary BBC logo could be created.


You can see it here: https://www.dafontfree.net/freefonts-linotype-audio-pi-f132678.htm


Looks like the font was updated after 1984, there's quite a few post-1984 logos on there, like Eins Plus, which didn't launch until 1986, and the 1987 & 1992 ZDF logos.
