Slight nitpick. That's the wrong Tyne Tees ident, it's their pre-strike one. After the strike they had a new one that didn't say Colour on it.

It demonstrated the other companies going off air if you watch the video,
Therefore the pre-strike one would be correct.

Wonderful film, I look forward to seeing the long version when it's available. Nice to see a brief contribution from Tony Currie of this parish too.
Write that down in your copybook now.

I don't know if CTV had a rival for the franchise in 1980/1 but I can't help feeling that CTV's effort during the '79 strike played a part in the IBA's decision to re-grant the licence.

Channel (along with Border and Grampian) were uncontested for the 1980/1 franchise round.

You have to wonder if there had have been a rival for CTV in 1980/81 it wouldn't have stood a chance.
