The Family Channel Pre-Launch Promo
Stand by for cheese overload! The Family Channel launched on September 1st 1993. This clip doesn't actually tell you whats coming on, its more of a montage of a makey-uppy family doing family things. Pressing home the family image I guess
Apologies for slightly shaky sound quality in parts.

"Good Afternoon and welcome to the Family Channel!" A slightly Disney-esque ident leads into a brief clip of the opening titles of Zorro.
