REMO TV Notebook
The advent of 24/7 television programming has made images such as this somewhat rare and rather quaint.
However, some of us would remember the times when a day's television programming had a beginning, a middle and an end, when all night TV programming (e.g. a "Movie Marathon") was a major event in a child's life (and a good chance to re-view films like The Blob and The Incredible Shrinking Man).
In those days, the test pattern was the kinder, gentler ending to the regular viewing day; and a much preferred experience to a screen full of noisy grey static jolting your creased and drooling face from the stained pillow on the couch.
