[Redbaron responds – This is the Test Card, it is very famous over here. It used to appear on the TV when there was no scheduled program in the days before 24 hour TV. It was designed so that if you were having a TV installed there would be a signal on each channel to tune the frequency of the TV to. Anyway on account of my temporary demotion to plebian blog status which means no pics and shit, I thought the Test Card was apt.
BTW you have indeed the first comment Rachel dear but then you appear to have been up for about 2 weeks!]

Danny the Infidel made this comment,
When I was a wee boy, more then 20 years ago, we used to have the test card on TV before the children’s programs started. Nowadays I seldom see the test card as there are TV programs almost 24h. Wonder what was best, that the children’s programs didn’t start until 6 p.m., “forcing” us kids to do other things or like it’s to day when children can sit and vegetate in front of the tube all day long.
Some used by Swedish national TV

i used to love that test card. i thought the girl looked like jane out of my ‘peter and jane’ reading books. i also liked the light jazz that was sometimes played instead of the bleeeeeep, or was that (and still is on bbc2)teletext?
