The Open University has broadcast its last course-related programme, after 36 years of late-night ‘entertainment’. The OU made programs to supplement printed and other materials to allow adults (including me!) to take part-time degree courses from home (in my case, a masters in computing, or at least half a masters so far).
Here’s a clip to give you an idea, though it doesn’t really get across the full horror of plaid flares, sideburns and foot-wide ties that the OU specialized in. A tradition for insomniacs, drunk students and shift-workers in the days before all-night programming, it’s passing will be sorely mourned.
