This seems relevant:
Some observations from the first minute: what's with the non-standard election 97 logo on the slide? Also the first thing in the menu is 'coming up' at 10pm when they went on air at 10.30. It's also a bit hard to follow the route he takes around TVC but it doesn't quite look like the most straightforward way from TC1 to TC6.
Right, I wonder how much of this I'll get through...
On the timing there’s a bit of info buried here:
Short version: they did a short bit at 10pm (the Honor Blackman sequence), then ‘Have I Got News For You’ was shown, before Armistice started properly at 10:30pm.
At the time I must have taped it and watched it the next day, rewatched the start of it last night and it still made me laugh.
I’m guessing the Dimbleby sequence was recorded earlier in the day / evening and then there’s a cut to a part they filmed at 10pm once they had the exit poll - I wonder if they were trusted enough to get it early, not many people are! Even those that are don’t get it that long before 10pm.
