Hello, just wondering if anyone had any footage of S2 / UTV2 / TV You - the pre-ITV2 channels in Scotland and Northern Ireland?
Can’t find any on TVark or YouTube.
Thanks

There’s not a great deal to see with TV You/UTV2. In all the time the channel existed they didn’t have any continuity or ads. They just had a break filler. They never promoted the channel and I’m not sure if they ever published listings (they were difficult to find if they did). They showed some ITV2 shows and ditched others, replacing them with archive UTV programmes.

Yes, and the bizarre thing is that although that is my old website, I couldn’t find that particular page when I had a look at it on Saturday. Glad you managed to!

I have some S2 screenshots on my DOG Watch page - they are all of the film Aliens and feature the opaque "S2" DOG which is hiding the ITV2 DOG underneath...

A bit late to this, but I found one image from S2's nightly entertainment programme "S2 live" a while back:

You can also watch the titles to the programme here on TV Ark.

Ironically, the clip appears to have been taped from a repeat on the main Scottish Television channel as opposed to from a viewing on the S2 channel itself.

EDIT: Just out of personal interest, I got intrigued and searched around for more! There's still a few images around on the internet, but no other footage I could find. From the Wayback Machine, they give you an idea of the logo/look:
