*ahem* Hutton Enquiry.

Harold Wilson absolutely *detested* the BBC and never forgave them for an interview he gave to them in the 1970 general election campaign.

VHF can, and in many countries, has carried 625-line pictures. The frequency bears no relation to the line timebase. Theoretically you could have had 405 on UHF, but there was no point in doing that...

Not much fuss at all. It might have been shown on BBC2 in 625 lines for those who wanted to see it in 625, and then passed through the Pye CO6-501 625 to 405 converter at TVC for BBC1.

I've seen clips, it's a telerecording. Most of the BBC footage of important televised events from the 60s are telerecordings. The 64 and 66 elections and the 66 world cup for instance.
