Latest Updates October-December 2018
Another 2 months have passed of continuous updates (indeed I've apparently not missed a daily update for the last 238 days now, as calculated using a pointless little routine I added in to the code). So time for the semi-occasional look at what's been added in recent times.
Since the rolling coverage at the end of September, the site has continued to expand on it's BBC Two
coverage, with new break bumpers and releases of idents added throughout October and November. In the case of BBC Two, this includes coverage from all 4 of the nations, for those who only have access to network/England and want to see what happens elsewhere. Within the last 2 days we've also started the coverage of Christmas across the channels, with Channel 5
and BBC One
/ BBC Two
already added in.
A lot of additional material has been added in to Channel 4 from the 90s
lately, with presentation from their Elvis 4 Ever weekend in early 1995, as well as a lot of the 'celeb' stings that appeared in the late days of the coloured blocks era. Also don't miss the rare occurence of a BBC1 programme being promoted on Channel 4 too, resulting in a very offbrand homemade slide.
In the regions, both Granada
have seen additions to their invision and promotional coverage recently, with continuity from Granada's Christmas 1987 look giving us a chilling reminder of the problem of blindfolded stuffed toys at that time of the year!
Away from the pres additions, a smattering of adverts from across the years have been added. With Griff Rhys Jones plugging Holsten Pils in the 80s, and predictions of what the internet would become from 1996 by the defunct-2-years-later DEC company.
The start of a Channel 4 sequence from 1/1/2000 has gone on the site, currently only with a limited selection of pages from the madcap computer magazine Digitiser, but with more to follow. As well as that, there's been a new 4-Tel on View sequence from Christmas 1994, with a little bit of festive animation featuring.
