Wow. I just stumbled upon this wonderful little piece of history.

BFBS Startup from 1984 + Birthday Time

I am fairly certain I recognize one of the names who got a birthday call out, but common names are common and it could just be my synapses getting crossed. I can't remember if my name ever got read out.

I think I already posted the short BFBS documentary on my journal before, but in case I didn't, here it is again for posterity.

This is BFBS Television, Part 1 (1983)

This is BFBS Television, Part 2 (1983)

I wonder if there will ever be something like this again? If we started flinging astronauts out to Mars and beyond, would they get their own special channel? I guess not. The internet made television random access, an endless library where you can just pick whatever book you like.
