I presume there's a technical or functional reason why many TV-Am recordings we now see have the speaking clock audible under them. These are primarily on the new TV-ARK recordings and the ones that Associated Press and Moving Images uploaded to the TV-AM Channel on YouTube over the years and not on the ones from Transdiffusion, which appear to be off-air recordings.

I read that on the master tapes they recorded the regular audio on one channel and the speaking clock on another- presumably the speaking clock is bleeding through.

Or whoever dubbed it off either mono'd the two channels or forgot to mute the second
