The bids from LondonTV and London8 would have been interesting to see on-air. London8 had ITN as one of its backers and was planning to go big on news. LondonTV had lined up CityTV Toronto's ex Head of Programming. Arguably either of these bids would have produced stronger television. When you look at the applications, IMHO London Live won simply on the strength of being able to say that it would heavily cross promote the channel in the Evening Standard. Very little focus on programming and content from the word go!

Interesting they simulcast the 6pm news and Scotland Tonight - guess it makes sense. Not sure it makes sense to offer a rival news programme to News at Ten though, though time will tell.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

I would assume The Riverside Show would be live at 1900, repeated 2300 and 1545 the following day.

I would assume all news would be live although 90 minutes is a long bulletin at 1200 and Scotland Tonight an unusual name for 1430 - perhaps that's a repeat.
Watch it and find out.

Actually if LL had stuck to their original plan, on paper certainly the lineup wasn't that bad - 90 minutes of news from 5.30, followed by an hour of entertainment (London Go), an hour of archive, then 90 minutes of acquired drama and entertainment 'set in London', a late news roundup at 10.30 followed by The Big Debate and finally an hour of new edgy programming under the the moniker Launchpad.

Sadly it seems only London Go managed to make it to air.
