After this episode, there’s a trailer where they basically throw out an entire published schedule to accomodate Opera from the Royal Opera House. Not sure it’s quite as respectful and pompous as Opera trailers normally are, but I guess that’s all to the good.
I must have been amused by this trailer, as I kept the whole of it, before recording switches to the next episode of Have I Got News For You. Guests on this episode are Jack Docherty
and his Absolutely compatriot Moray Hunter

This is the last episode on the tape. Just after, recording stops, and underneath there’s a 30 minute still caption from Sky One. Gripping stuff.
And that’s it for this tape.
