Sometimes I just sits


Who else is old enough to remember TV closing down at the end of the evening with the national anthem? Did the image really used to shrink down to a dot in the middle of the screen and then disappear? That's what I recall, but the chances of it being correct are slim.

I remember the end of the broadcast day, but instead of the dot you describe, the screen would turn to white snow (just static). However, when we turned the black and white TV it would shrink down to the little black dot and then night-night...

"the chances of it being correct are slim" ==> spoken by a man who has been married at least once. You are not entirely wrong from my side of the pond. :)

Perhaps we should issue a DVD compilation.
