As I type, there’s a power cut in the Piccadilly and Soho areas of the West End of London. They sometimes happen: one such power cut in central London scuppered the launch of BBC-2 in April 1964. From 1984 comes this documentary about that power cut, and how BBC-2 recovered from such an inauspicious launch. Ludovic Kennedy narrates.
