Rediffusion London Start Up

The Rediffusion morning start-up sequence was very similar to ATV's London weekend sequence, as this nifty recreation shows. Hardly surprising, as they shared the same transmitter in Croydon, hence the Picasso card tuning signal, pictured. A recorded announcement by Redvers Kyle leads into Johnny Dankworth's full length march, "The Widespread World of Rediffusion", followed by the spinning Rediffusion star. Incidentally, the Rediffusion star would spin constantly, in the opposite direction to the Associated Rediffusion star!
