The Test Card Gallery

Test Card ‘E’

Test Card 'E', introduced in 1964 and withdrawn within a week! The frequency gratings appeared to lack detail compared to those on test card 'C' – not a good advertisement for the new 'High Definition' system!
And of course there had to be the service announcement version. There is evidence that test card 'E' enjoyed a few outings regionally (e.g. Birmingham) as the new broadcast centres had not been issued with any other 625-Line pattern.
