This isn't a breakdown per se, but it does involve stuff being put to air that we shouldn't have heard!
On 2nd December 1982, Channel 4 closed down for the night. Nothing unusual in that, but keep watching the video. We hear the phone ringing after it's gone off air, and what were presentation "looking into"?
Definitely has an air of "bloke who's lost his car key and is frantically looking for it under everything" that one!
Came across a VHS with a poor quality Pages from Ceefax recording recently from 1999. Its from BBC2 Scotland and is the compilation that begins with the track "Sightseeing". The track plays fine, all the way through, then starts to play again, only for it to get stuck and loop the same half-a-second over and over again! Sadly the recording ends before we hear what happens next.
I actually recall it happening again on another occasion, with the same track. Ended up getting switched with a disc featuring a female Gaelic singer
