Previous thread appears to have been archived.

Reporter Amy Lea co-presenting the 6 o’clock programme this evening, fairly new to the team usually only certain reporters double up and deputise. Is Pam Royle on leave or anything mentioned as different reporters for around a month now.

They don't seem to have gone to the extend YTV did last summer for their 50th. I don't think they have the resources and they can't exactly showcase a building on an industrial estate.

Yorkshire is the only ITV plc region left which can still do programmes like that, given they're the only region left which still has their own studio complex, thanks to Emmerdale.


If Yorkshire had relocated to premises similar to the other regions (which could have easily happened if Emmerdale had moved to a separate location, like what happened with Granada when Coronation Street moved), most of which are little more than a news studio and offices, I think their 50th celebrations last year would have been very different.

The only other region which still had their own (non-news) studio facilities until recently was UTV, but now that Havelock House has closed, I think UTV's 60th celebrations will look very different to how they could have looked if they were still in Havelock House.

Anglia (East) Look East
I'm not quite sure that's true. Anglia continues to reside in their original headquarters at Anglia House in the centre of Norwich. They've moved out of the extension they built themselves in the 80s/90s and their former, separate studio complex elsewhere in the city was sold on a while ago and is now operated by a different company, but they still have a pretty big space for their operation! ISTR someone saying on here years back that they'd have to return the building to its original condition if they vacated, which would be much too expensive?

They might still occupy their original headquarters, but they have downsized within that building, which has resulted in them sharing the building with other companies, which includes:


White Label Media: http://www.wlms-ltd.co.uk/contact/

Screen East: http://film.britishcouncil.org/beats-of-the-east

First Take Films: http://www.simonbyford.co.uk/html/pages/ftake.htm

In terms of size (which Anglia occupies within the building) and operations, Anglia House bears much more similarity to most of the other ITV plc regions than Yorkshire, so you can't really compare Anglia House to Kirkstall Road.

Even their archive is now held by a separate organisation (East Anglian Film Archive), like many other regions.
