At 7pm the wait was over. The golden globe finally appeared with Mark Waddington proudly introducing the first edition of "Wogan". BBC1's brave new world coincided with the introduction of computerised weather graphics, which had debuted half an hour earlier. And of course the new globe meant a new station clock. Or maybe not - the previous clock face was retained, with new blue and gold colours. Note the centre dot is missing from the clock face - this was never corrected during the clock's run.
