The BBC and ITV have over the years used a number of tuning signals, test cards and captions either for engineering purposes, or just to fill time in the days before breakfast and daytime TV.
Used from the beginning of the BBC until the early seventies, the tuning signal was primarily for viewers to warm up their television sets and adjust the numerous controls until they could see an acceptable picture.
The images and patterns were for use by "lay-people" and were not designed to test equipment in any scientific way.
