In 1980, Three East put in three bids for ITV regions, the Midlands, Scotland, and East England, and it gained the East of England. Three East had put in a bid of 10,125,000 for the region. Although Anglia TV's bid was almost double the IBA decided that East of England Television would be able to provide the best service for the region.

Anglia TV bowed out on Thursday December 31st 1981 with the final programme they were ever to make or broadcast (Anglia decided to sell everything to Three East), Good Knight and Goodbye. Then Anglia pressed the button and cut off.

After Anglia was gone forever and everyone was able to sleep off their New Years excesses, Three East first appeared on 1 January 1982. Here is an ident timeline:

Loading up Paint and drawing a box over a screengrab then writing EAST OF ENGLAND (without even trying to find a font close to the one ITV used) on the box is not a mock. Also, I'm sure the site and/or person who acquired the original screengrabs you altered would want some credit, at least.

Luke sam, this hasn't gone as well as could have been expected, has it?

But you're new, we can see that, why not try reading this thread/any thread with a star rating greater than 4 before sharing any further mockings?


I've read the same thread mentioned above. So, from now on, I will use painting programs (e.g. Photoshop) to improve and share my very own mockings.

Lukesams3, why don't you take a look at these links and see where they got it right:

These are exactly what APFS style mocks are supposed to look like. I'm glad we are now starting to get more fictional ITV mocks than Daybreak and BBC News mocks on here, but you need to spend a hell of a lot more time on your mocks, otherwise they will look outstandingly bad, as we have seen on this thread.
