 Thames Television | Vision On
The Thames daily start-up routine was unusual in that it was put together as a political gesture within the industry.
When Thames had been formed in 1968 as a joint subsidiary of ABC and Rediffusion (and not a merger as often wrongly stated) the ITA had defined that the ABC parent company would have a controlling share in the new setup.
To emphasise their control of the new company and to publicly imply that the new station was really ABC by another name, the presentation department, imported wholesale from ABC, chose to use the former ABC start-up music ‘Perpetuum Mobile’ by Michael Roberts as the first of two pieces to be used daily.

The Thames has a length of 346 kilometres (215 statute miles) with its source near the village of Kemble in the Cotswolds; it then flows through Oxford (where it is called the Isis, a truncation of its Latin name), Reading, Maidenhead, Eton and Windsor.
By the 18th century, the Thames was one of the world's busiest waterways, as London became the centre of the vast, mercantile British Empire.
In return, the Thames has undergone a massive clean-up from the filthy days of the late 19th and early- to mid-20th centuries, and life has returned to its formerly dead waters.

Indeed under his later contract with Thames Television, Hill was given full control of his program such that he could undertake a program when, in his opinion, he had accumulated enough comic material.
The forces of political correctness finally had their way in 1989 when Thames Television canceled the program due not to only complaints about its smuttiness but also because its old-fashioned sexism had become increasingly intolerable.
