At the end of a tape, after a recording of a movie ended, there was a bit of a previous recording that was taped over. We see most of the National Anthem, then some strange black and white bars, and then static. In the static you can hear bleeding through what perhaps was on another channel at the same time (during the static the tape kept speeding up which is why the audio races at times)

RetroNewfoundland (Vintage Canada) was enterprising enough to slow down the audio heard at the end of the sign-off (during the static) so that it could be made out what it was, which could help ID the exact air date of this clip. Thank you, VintageCanada! Listen to that audio enhancement here.

Also, a longer version here, courtesy, Zappi.

The mystery of what station this is from appears to have been solved, thanks to BobAnthony. WWJ Channel 4 (which a few months later would become WDIV)

Not sure when it aired exactly, but it was sometime before Sunday, March 19th 1978.
