BBC regional news

450 jobs going in English Regions to save £25 million . Inside Out replaced by 6 different programmes covering joint regions. New weekly TV political programme produced at Birmingham with a podcast to accompany it. 7 of 20 TV presenter jobs go as a result of programmes all becoming single headed presentation. etc. etc.

I suspect changes in workflow, (that have been trialled at a BBC site for a year or so (not one of the regions) are part of this, and will be another step towards HD, (which will likely rely upon some centralised resources)

I wonder if BBC One HD might eventually launch as a macro regional service.

Could you try a S42 6** postcode?

S42 6 - BBC Yorks / ITV Yorks W

I've found the border!

This brand new roundabout on the A61 Clay Cross-Chesterfield:

McDonalds (right) is BBC East Midlands / ITV Yorkshire E (S45) and The Six Halts Pub (left) is BBC Yorkshire / ITV Yorkshire W (S42 6**).

Bears no link to actual terrestrial coverage or local district boundaries. The TV aerial on McDonald's points to Emley.

2.23 km further south on the A61 https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@53.1541811,-1.4134694,3a,75y,154.98h,83.73t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sch4DYiBPjw-f99ksJN5Iog!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

and this is the point BBC East Mids/ ITV Yorkshire E becomes BBC East Mids/ ITV Central E
