(Includes rare footage of Esther McVey doing a job she was just about competent at.)
Remember this at the time, this was all part of Lime Grove day on the August Bank Holiday in 1991 where all of BBC2's line-up was programmes produced at or about Lime Grove to mark the studio's closure. CBBC was on BBC2 that week because of the World Athletics Championships so they got co-opted into the day and all the links were in black and white.
CBBC was on top form at the time, I remember April 1st was Easter Monday that year and their April Fool was that the transmitters were broadcasting in mirror image, so they showed the BBC1 Transmitter Information slide back to front, and played the opening titles of Ovide in mirror image too. Which was far too subtle for most of the audience, I would suspect. It certainly was for me, I was totally taken in by it all.
