Were there significant pauses between commercials and tv programming in the past?

I have a vague childhood memory of a full three to five seconds of blank, dark screen occurring between commercials and programming (and such--that is, between station breaks, station id, teasers, etc). This would have been in the 1970's.
Did this happen? If this did happen, when did it stop? I can't figure out a way to google this. Thanks!
