Openings and Closings

BBC
BBC Coat of Arms

Although the BBC Coat of Arms was included as part of the standard Opening Routine, it was also used on its own as a standby, or to introduce an important event.

Since television was on the air for only a few hours each day, with 3 separate transmissions (Afternoon programmes for women, Teatime programmes for children, and the main Evening programmes), closing routines were conducted after each one.
