target date - October 1967]
If you are a child of the sixties
and seventies then this image will probably remind you of
being off school with the dreaded 'lurgy'. In those days there
was no daytime TV to speak of, only special 'Programmes for
Schools and Colleges' and scary things for Cymru Wales. These
comforting pictures, accompanied by electronic copyright-free
musak filled in the gaps where there was nothing on TV and
were used by television engineers to test those old Rediffusion
TV sets in their imitation teak cabinets.
Please call back later when
'normal service' will be resumed.
If you actually enjoy looking
at test cards [ ????? ] visit my links page for dedicated
test card sites.
