Just got a newsletter from the Institute of Physics, whose President is also a woman.

Bit off topic, I'm afraid - but it's core is the dated nature of the Trade Test films.

The house is in Cambridge Road West, Farnborough. The circle of houses is Church Circle, which looks remarkably unchanged since the film was made (the clutter of ugly modern cars aside!).
I see the garage on Google maps now - a Gulf petrol station. Thank you.

If you go to this below, then go about 22 minutes into the clip you will find the track with the simulated dog bark at the end. This piece was played with the BBC2 test card just before 'Play School' coming up to 11am in the mornings.

What was the TCF that started something like 'at times the north Sea is like a mill pond' and what was the one that showed the Dutch incinerator plant where just about everything went in and only scrap metal came out?

I have collected several CD's of test card music that were used by ITV. I'll dig them out and pass the information.

After that awful Kiddie's Kapers thing the next piece at 24:20 is the Gemini Suite which was composed by Johnny Pearson of Sounds Orchestral fame.
