Granada North West Today
Screenshot's quite interesting, as it's a 16:9 screenshot from a time when the channel was only available in 14:9, so must have been taken from the studio at the time or a master tape!

That's why I was wondering where it came from. Very nice to have as it confirms that the clock background extended all the way to the edge (so my mock is correct!)

Given that the website it apparently came from includes a cv with "Launched BBC News 24"...

Weren’t a lot of hours branded as “x o’clock News” at one point?


Yes - single headed shifts in the evening had that branding. Except from memory there wasn't a 9 O'Clock News - no doubt the BBC One bulletin weren't happy about that title being used elsewhere...

Kate Garraway (aka 'The Jennifer Aniston of News 24') and Matthew Amroliwala were the main presenters in that slot (not together)
