A 1440 is easier to produce. A general recipe:

Take a right-place 720 with no single changes and where only adjacent 
places are made at alternate backstrokes. Any of the rows either side of 
these places can be omitted leaving a valid change joining the remaining 
rows (these will be either all of the +ve or -ve rows, depending where 
it is started), although there may be several consecutive blows in one 
place. Take a similar 720 with rows are of opposite nature. Given any 
true round block, omit the rows of this from the two 720s. Join the bits 

1440 Spliced Minor (5m)

Start with a lead of Rapid Rap for 612345
change to Bastow, starting at the half lead, giving 136524


62453   4 (4 leads)
32546   4.5
42536   5x
62354   3y.4.5
42653   4
32564   4.5
42365   4.5z
52634   4.5
32465   4s (4 leads)
52643   4.5
52436   2z.5
62345   4.5
x = 56-16
y = 3456-16
z = -3456.16

then half a lead gives 612345


1320 Bastow Little Bob
48 Rapid Rap
36 z (Little Hybrid)
18 x (Differential Little Hybrid)
18 y (Little Hybrid)
