Election 97

From YSTV History Wiki

Election 97 had a space theme. The title sequence depicted the YSTV control room as the bridge of a spaceship preparing for launch, and a nifty shot of a shuttle over Goodricke. A number of clips (and the soundtrack) in this sequence were lifted from the 1995 film Apollo 13.

The opening was marred by sound problems, and was attempted around half a dozen times. The space theme was carried through into Star Trek-style costumes worn by the presenters and results being announced by a "red alert" alarm that surprised some candidates being interviewed on the elaborate set constructed in the studio.

Fillers included a trailer for the never-to-be-made Joker in the Pack II.

Screengrabs of the show can be seen here [on YSTV's website].
