Cult Icons: BBC Schools Countdown Clock (1981)


Though this is an indent from 1981 and I had long escaped the torture that was my school days, one of the things that reminds me of those days of doing double Geography were the times when the teacher wheeled in a boxy wooden black and white Rediffusion television on a huge stand and we had to watch a program about the subject we were doing that lesson. We'd all gather around and watch the BBC Schools Countdown clock before the program started. Looking back, these indents were definitely one of those cult memories you think back on with a smile and recall programs such as "How We Used to Live.", "You and Me.", "Words and Pictures.", and the utterly brilliant "Magic Box". Kids today don't know wot they're missing..
