Forum: classic_tv Subject: Complete broadcast days which were recorded?

The example, the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia holds a complete broadcasting day from 26 January 1988 for Townsville station TNQ. This has been digitised but isn't readily available. Shows on the schedule included: "A Current Affair", "Alf", "Business Today", "Courageous Cat and Minute Mouse", "Days of Our Lives", "Doctor on the Go", "Fat Cat and Friends", "Get Smart", "Happy Days", "Jazzercise", "Lassie", "Lou Grant", "M*A*S*H", "Mr. Magoo", "National Nine News', "NQTV News", "Sale of the Century" (Australian version of the American game show), "The Six Million Dollar Man", "Today", "Wally Gator", "Welcome Back, Kotter", and "Wombat". Gee, a lot of already-old American imports on the schedule....

They also hold, also from 26 January 1988, a complete broadcasting day for Sydney station ATN-7. Shows on the schedule included: "Blue Fin" (presumably the feature film), "CNN Live", "CNN Newsworld Report", "A Country Practice", "Dino Boy", "Home and Away", "Huckleberry Hound", "The Island of Nevawuz", "NBC Today Show", "Newsworld", "Pixie and Dixie", "Press Your Luck" (Australian version of the American game show), "Romper Room"(Australian version of the American children's show), "Seven Nightly News", "Space Ghost", "Terry Willesee Tonight", "Wheel of Fortune" (Australian version of the American game show), "Wombat", and "Yogi Bear". This recording has been digitised, but again, isn't readily available.

There may be several other 26 January 1988 broadcasting day recordings held, but these haven't been digitised.

Are there any other classic broadcasting days in existence? Yes, I'm already aware that several such recordings exist of old time radio (and these can be found on the Internet Archive).
