This is crazy!
Wikipedia – Test card
I love Wiki!
Something funny I heard someone say on the radio one time: “My daughter gets up at five o’clock in the morning to watch the test pattern”.
I used to hate the sight of the Indian Test Card it meant that the cartoons hadn’t started yet. I had gotten up too early and would have to wait for the test card to die and then sit through a half hour farm report.
At least you got the bleeding Indian. When I got up too early, Disney Channel (can you imagine?) would have the big chunky stripy one (which I now know is the SMTPE test card) that I’d have to stare at, stricken with the knowledge that I’d also have to sit through the Mickey”s Exercise show, with Goofey falling over and Minnie in her leotard all peppy before the cartoons would start.
Bollocks there’s two of these and now I have a comment in each and I can’t delete them. Bugger. Whaddoido.
