|Sign-off of Chicago's premier Public
Broadcasting Service (PBS) member station, and also one
of the oldest educational TV stations in the U.S.. The
clip commences with the final minute or so of a 1972
episode of the BBC's sci-fi serial Doctor Who,
which was a staple on U.S. public TV stations for many
years. It's followed by a promo for the WTTW program Wild
Chicago. The SSB piece that follows the sign-off
announcement was most likely produced by WTTW itself.
