Sums up why ITV are axing IVC.

I don't know, I was never a fan of UTV's green screen set up but I feel it injects a bit of personality into the station. Easier to do with a regional franchise like UTV than the whole of England and Wales on ITV though.

As Julian would say, he is all done up like a dog's dinner in that suit. He did provide warmth to intros to ITV shows. However IVC just does not fit with ITV and they had to ditch it when they bought UTV.

Julian Simmons out of vision is just another - and rather below par in this case - random voice. He's an on screen talent, not there for his voice. He should have just joined the ranks of Steel and Weston and gave it up as a bad job rather than hanging on.

Well he did his last IVC into Murder She Wrote and that was that, no farewells. Teleshopping has just commenced now with no voice over at all over the UTV logo. Rather dull end to years of IVC from Julian.

It will be interesting to see if there are still ITV idents as usual tonight - and whether they will continue past tomorrow's changes.
