Thames at Six

Andrew Gardner hosts an edition of Thames at Six from 1978, alongside co-anchor Bob Southgate. Magazine items include the ongoing "battle" over Bethnal Green Hospital, while Bob introduces a report on the murder of a Guyanese nurse at Claybury Mental Hospital in Woodford. The treatment of the Thames ident is worthy of interest; a jazzy rendition of the ident music leaps straight into the Thames at Six signature tune, while the skyline becomes a wipe pattern and a layer mask over still photographs.
