Oracle 1992

31st December 2010 - From Ant :

At this time of year I'm always reminded of how long it has been since Oracle disappeared - 18 years ago this evening in fact. With that in mind. thought you might like this. Bits and pieces of it have been floating around in various forms for a while but at the moment I think this is probably the most complete and restored version of the full last night of Oracle. Sourced from an SVHS recording, processed with some teletext hardware that basically did its best to repair the pages from as many repeat cycles as it could make out, and - after much procrastination - a certain amount of human repair (that would be me then).

 ******** MAN MAULED BY LION            
 ******** AT LONDON ZOO                 
 A man has had emergency surgery after  
 being badly mauled when he climbed into
 the lions' den at London Zoo.          
 He was airlifted to hospital with a    
 deep chest wound after zoo staff fired 
 a shot and let off fire extinguishers  
 to distract the three Asiatic lions.   
 London Zoo chief executive Jo Gipps,   
 who promised a thorough safety review, 
 said the man must have been "pretty    
 determined" to get inside.             
 "You've got to cross a planted area,   
 climb perhaps 15 or 20 feet of mesh and
 then drop down quite a long way." >>>>>
