I've failed to find the music featured from 0:40 in this video:



It happened on the 7th of April 2011
If anybody has a copy of it, let me know.

Thanks.

Awesome, I'll have a look. Might try pulling it out of the install files.

Thanks!

I have managed to pull the track(s) out of the game assets, it's great! Props to you, DanielC! and thanks JasonB!

That music also went out for three days straight when the network ran out of money. Complete with the slightly mismatched loop edit in the music.

That was the other reason I was looking for it!

By any chance, do you know of/have any clips of the moment they stopped broadcast?

No, but there was a discussion about it and from what was gleaned at the time it was obviously very short notice and the consensus seemed to be they stuck a "technical problems" slide up mid auction (most probably) and then everybody went home:

And that was it, until the output from the gallery was terminated and they lost their Sky/Virgin/Freeview positions.

From elsewhere at the time, people who were watching said Peter Sherlock was cut off mid sentence and the technical fault slides appeared straight after.

Shame we never saw any clips from the final day when those slides were thrown up and sat there for I thought it was three days but looking at the linked TV Forum thread seemed to have been the best part of a week! Mind you it was Easter bank holiday weekend...

You'd be surprised if you looked at YouTube...
Maybe if Peter Simon was on air at the time it would have made its way to a video sharing website near you by now.
