Shame we didn’t get Jamie and Zoe in the balloon, or Dani Behr and Joe Mace on the rooftop with the Capoeira dancers.

I think by 1997 people were more cynical about rebrands. There was certainly quite a bit of backlash initially about the new BBC branding (particularly the cost).

Although in reality it was all a lot of hot air.
Be nicer and more tolerant to each other. Them's the rules.

Yet another upload of the infamous PPB that fell off the air - this time we see how Scottish Television handled things. Bryce Curdy appears in vision and fills for a couple of minutes. Interestingly he makes a couple of references to the “network feed” and “network lines” - not something announcers would normally talk about, but in doing so made it quite clear the problem was well out of STV’s hands.



It would be great if someone could add this STV footage to the YTV and Thames comparison video!

Epic bit of filling there, very well handled. The Thames and Yorkshire examples don't show as far as News at Ten so I hadn't realised what happened next

A demonstration of the Post Office's Viewdata system here on Magpie - presumably what became Prestel

Isonstine and London Lite gave kudos

Indeed. It became Prestel. I was given a demonstration, very similar to that on a visit to Martlesham Heath, the Post Office Research Centre.
