bbc2 test transmission

When I was a lad in the 1960 I'm sure remember a BBC2 test transmission showing an Australian "Road Train"
Try as I might I can't find any reference to it on You tube or in any search engine.
Does anybody else even remember seeing it,let alone helping me find a reference to it?

I'm guessing it might be "The Cattle Carters (1962)"
as it was about an Australian road train but still no definitive as to what the story was to "The Cattle Carters (1962)" was about
