BBC1 Start-Up

BBC1 stopped broadcasting Open University programmes after the end of the 1992 term – all OU programmes were shown on BBC2 – so BBC1 started its day at the weekend at around 7.30am and preceded it with a Ceefax transmission which began at 7am. Saturday's programmes began with the early morning news summary before handing over to Children's BBC for the rest of the morning. Images of the Ceefax transmission which preceded this startup can be found on the Teletext BBC page.
