1962 news bulletin re-discovered

The earliest known recording of a regional TV news bulletin for the south of England has been re-discovered during research ahead of BBC South's 50th anniversary.

It shows most of an edition of South at Six, the pre-cursor to South Today, broadcast on 9 October 1962.

The recording includes a film made by legendary broadcaster, John Arlott, in which he visits the Hampshire village of Avington.

BBC South's first transmission was made from South Western House in Southampton on 6th January 1961.
