I think the video was from Thames. It's Peter Marshall doing the vo.

(Never thought that he who shall not be named would be mentioned here)


Doesn't mean the video's from Thames, it's Thames who were networking the continuity that night so he'd have been heard everywhere.


Hmm. There was another video that had both BBC Yorks/YTV footage.

If you look at the national version from Thames, there's a 'V' transition from the end of the trailer into the clock, so Thames very likely arranged the junctions that night to allow local CA within their dirty national pres feed

Notice that the only clips in the menu promo are for programmes that Thames would have had locally. Presumably no chance of getting a clip of that nights Coronation Street or 321 sent down for the edit

Well I am a bit surprised, was it just continuity, as they must have just aired the entire return night schedule from London?


It wasn't really proper continuity on Yorkshire, they did an announcement at 5.40 before handing over to the networked service from Thames. Presumably that was the case in other regions. But Tony Currie has said here that STV did their own continuity that evening, and even an in-vision closedown, although it looked crap because the camera hadn't been properly lined-up for twelve weeks.

It does say somewhere on Wikipedia that Westward came back two days before everyone else and did Westward Diary on Monday and Tuesday (and presumably no other programmes). I find that a bit hard to believe and I've not found any proof of that anywhere.
