Apologies in advance for the rather poor quality of the clip. It starts off with a promo for Channel 2's weekday afternoon reruns of the 1973-90 CBS series Barnaby Jones, starring Buddy Ebsen. Following this is Give Us This Day (with a brief mix-up of audio clips at the start; it's the sound engineer cat-napping this time!), featuring the Reverend Ann Jones of New York City. The sign-off announcement is delivered here by Roger Forster. The Seal of Good Practice featured in this clip is a variation of the final version the NAB unveiled the previous year.
