Re: Spark plugs on old Vauxhalls

This is a long shot but nothing ventured nothing gained. I ask here as we seem to have some radio types on the forum. Back in the late 80s (I was so tempted to put an apostrophe there), 88 I think, whilst twiddling the knob on my TV I stumbled across a channel broadcasting the Film Rocky. By shear chance I caught the exact moment the broadcast was started as I saw the white fuzzy disappear and heard the words test broadcast and then the opening credits started. The broadcast didn't stop till the film ended. The same thing happened again the next day at the same time (6pm ish if my recollection is correct).

Has anyone ever stumbled across such transmissions? Is this something well know in the radio world?
