The date is uncannily correct!!!

And you are quite correct, one reel was shown twice.

OK an extra 50 points for the title...!

ALMOST nobody noticed....

I remember watching this in the wee small hours after an evenings liquid
while at university in '79 or '80.

The reel order went 1,3,2,3,4, or similar. He actually showed one reel

This is the first confirmation that I wasn't imagining things 23 years ago.
It's been bugging me ever since!
