During the Abingdon programme's final fortnight, they kept referring to "18 years of Central News South".

On the first main evening Birmingham programme after CN South was abolished, Bob Warman welcomed Herefordshire viewers back "after 17 years".

Presumably, the exact number of months that CN South existed was somewhere between 17 and 18 whole years?

I thought that the inconsistency between rounding up / rounding down was a bit naff.
I'm still a European.

And next month marks 10 years since the end of the short lived ITV Thames Valley and Wesley losing his main anchor status. I still like to think we shall see him at the helm of a region once again.

More chance of the Queen abdicating than Bob Warman retiring it seems.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

Time to go and let others have a chance!

Here's a puzzle for you... whatever happened to Derek Hobson after his spell at TSW? Also, I'd heard a rumour his contract wasn't renewed with ATV in 1979. All a mystery.

He was an occasional presenter on LBC in the early 90s, he used to fill in for Steve Allen

Suzanne Virdee back at the BBC reporting for this week's West Midlands edition of Inside Out.

And 'Andy' from Blue Peter's 'bad' Birmingham accent continues. I don't doubt his heritage, but he never spoke like that on Blue Peter (or any other programme he was on) but since (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-37289733/ex-blue-peter-presenter-why-i-changed-my-name).

It's almost like it's faked for the purposes of the programme.
Oh it's such a perfect day, I'm glad I spent it with you...

Central (East) Midlands Today
Not exactly sure why they bothered to make an edition of Midlands today this evening. There was less than a minute of news with no reports contained inside a 3-minute bulletin more than half of which was spent on sport and a significant proportion of the remainder on weather.
