The BBC experimented with a night-time service from 1992 until c. 1994. BBC Select was launched on January 21 1992. The service was intended for specialist audiences such as nurses. There was no announcer or proper continuity for this service. Most of the programmes were broadcast between 2am and 6am; some of the broadcasts were subscription only. BBC Select programmes were broadcast on BBC One and BBC Two.
