Scottish Night Time

Scottish Television started 24-hour transmission on 13 February 1988. Originally, the service was joint schedule with Central and Granada Television, but was abandoned within a few months. During this time, all three stations provided local presentation. To Start with a number of interludes were used along with music instead of advert, when the slots could be not filled.
