TV ARK: Returns Jan 2020

At LAST!

I felt Granada really upped their game in the mid-late 90s. Their idents were either gorgeous and/or lovingly quirky. Just a shame the quirky ones didn't last all that long and are therefore quite tricky to come by online, not least the (AFAIK) single YouTube upload of their 1997 Christmas ident.

Also love the Granada "setting the standard" flags idents but don't remember them on screen.
Were those only used before the news? With a standard blue stripe one at other times?

I think so from previous discussions, though there seems to be loads of them considering how infrequently they were used (and only for a year or so), especially in comparison to the plain stripe, which at the time seemed rather dull, though we had the luxury of Central as our main region, with Granada and HTV through other aerials. I do think those early 90s stripes though have aged very well indeed.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

Loads of them? Must be a very limited selection compared to Yorkshire's 1999 local idents, rarely used because the hearts launched with them.

Surprised this hasn't been touched upon yet but one of the things I really liked about the old TV Ark was that pretty much every video had some sort of description attached to it which provided context.

It's a real shame that those descriptions weren't transferred to the new site - having them helped me watch videos I otherwise wouldn't have

The video descriptions are still there under the 'i' button, a shame it requires an extra click.

As I pointed out two pages ago. Jeffmister, it pays to look back through the thread.

the spelling and grammar errors and attitude of the person who does it is very off-putting



I believe 623058 formally of this parish is responsible for that. Which explains both of those things.


We are currently being told how much the Nine Network disliked The Young Doctors due to its cancellation and scheduling of it, much the same way as how Anglia hated Emmerdale Farm as they showed it at 5.15pm.

Not a great advert for the site, to be honest.

I'm not sure how they thought he was a good person to run their social media presence.

The former member's ability at spelling and grammar is probably significantly higher than a lot of other people on social media, shall we say.

We're not just talking about that though, but their overall attitude in general.
