|Sign-off clip of Washington DC's CBS
affiliate back when it was WDVM-TV. For many years before
this it was known as WTOP-TV and owned by The
Washington Post. The clip commences with a film
Channel 9 ran at sign-off time for many years entitled
"Meditation". "Meditation" is also
the title of the music that accompanies the film. It is
by Jules Massenent from his opera Thais, and is
also known as "Meditation de Thais".
Immediately following is the final design variation of
the NAB's Seal of Good Practice, used in the early 1980s
before the NAB abolished both their Radio and Television
Codes.in 1983. After this comes the sign-off
announcement, which is delivered by staff announcer Renee
Chaney. The video concludes with the "Flag
Evolution" Star Spangled Banner film.
