Also, the camera script for the final episode is here, which shows how rigidly scripted these Saturday Morning shows actually were, despite how spontaneous they seem.

https://saturdaymornings.co.uk/?show=gl&mode=script

Look like the missing portion of the episode is at around the 1:04:35 part on the video, it skips from an old clip of French & Saunders to Philip reading out letters. Going by the timings in the camera script, there's around 15-20 minutes missing from the "complete" video.

Two YouTube accounts currently putting out some great original clips of lost TV:

Kaleidoscope's Presentation Vault are uploading a some 70s and early 80s material
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxfaQSP3etFGNMG6eL_5f-w
Including this BBC North West Junction from 1980



'What's on the tapes' has got hold of a load of tapes and is going through and digitising the interesting bits and also doing some live chats as he finds new footage

This BBC1 closedown is particularly interesting because it has a PIF starring Punt and Dennis.

I've seen quite a few closedowns from this era where Test Card F appears a few minutes after closedown. I'm guessing these were days when BBC Select was running a programme?

The final ever Going Live from 1993.

I have NO memory of that Gravedale High cartoon for some reason, looks like typical late 80s/early 90s Hanna-Barbera though, they all looked virtually the same, right down to virtually identical title cards and end credits!

The BBC Archive Twitter feed posted a video of the end of this episode a few years back, taken from the master tape, so it had an extra 30 or so seconds that weren't broadcast.



Here it is on Facebook:

The interesting bit in the final Going Live is when Sarah Greene hints that Pirates of Dark Water was taken off air as it was so awful!

I never noticed before that Phil goes to pick up his script after quietly dropping it behind him, unlike Sarah who just threw it. Presumably wanted to keep it as a momento.

I had the final show on tape but wiped over it with an overnight celebration of Home and Away ITV did in the mid-90s Rolling Eyes

There were occasions when they kept the transmitters on all night to prevent issues trying to start them up the next morning in freezing weather.
Write that down in your copybook now.

Not on that closedown, which is from August, though!

If the testcard appeared after closedown it was maybe because they were doing some engineering work overnight?


What intrigues me about that closedown clip is that it's recorded with subtitles. I had one that recorded them which could be turned on and off when played back but they don't look clear enough for that.

The only place I've seen burnt in subtitles on a VHS were on recordings made on logging/PasB tapes, although they normally have time of day too
