Looked like the tape got screwed up as the image slowly vanished followed by the sound slowly diminishing. This was followed by a Match of the Day caption then black, then the same caption again then fade and then an apology caption with some music. Only went off for about a minute.

Time to replace the system me thinks!

Yep - two minutes into Ground Force off for about 2 minutes.... BBC obviously having problems tonight!!

And before the programme with Philippa Forrester earlier there did seem to be problems as the ident went on for much longer than usual...

Is it just happening on BBC 1, or some of the other channels aswell?

This proves to all those cynics that NC1 and DNC1 are seperate networks!

Don't know if it's connected, but there have been power tests at TV Centre over the weekend. Maybe these didn't go quite according to plan?
