  • What was the advert break on Granada in the 1960's?

    I know that Rediffusion used the adastral zooming towards you between each advert, but what was used on the Granada region to do the same thing. Does anyone know?

    Falling out of use in the 1970s it was this one .. the TV screen silhouette zoom ?

    recorded from an early home video, here is the famous adastral in action .

      I had no idea about this but always used to wonder what that row of white squares and then one rushing towards you was between ITV ads in my region ( London). It seemed to stop sometime on the early 80s. Anyone know why?
