Crystal Palace Transmitter takes viewers back in time!

From the BBC’s Daily Brief.

CRYSTAL PALACE/PROBLEMS AFFECTING BBC ONE
A problem with the Crystal Palace transmitter yesterday afternoon (Tuesday 19th July 2005) meant that BBC ONE analogue transmitted in black and white on the analogue platform from approx 15.55 to 16.31. This affected the end of BB3B, a CBBC live link and the beginning of WATCH MY CHOPS. There was a further brief burst of black and white some minutes later when Crown Castle attempted to fix the original fault on the transmitter.

..and for a brief moment there was also a policeman on every corner and it was safe to leave your back door open. Sigh.

I’ve written about the CP transmitter before… here’s some other interesting links wikipedia and vintagebroadcasting.org
