Yorkshire Look North (E.Yorks & Lincs)
Of course in Yorkshire we have neither as we opt back in after the national weather.

Really? Not sure this is entirely accurate. In East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, it’s the local weather and a full close before returning to the network forecast. Last time I saw Yorkshire, it was local forecast followed by weather summary before handing over to the network forecast (“the national forecast follows”).
Yorkshire and Yorks & Lincs are two different regions. This is odd though, as they share the weather presenters - that's why Look North Hull's weather forecast is in the middle of the 6.30pm programme instead of at the end.

Breakfast 'local' bulletins are shared between the two still I think? Produced from Hull.

Sorry if you’ve had this discussion before, but do forumers prefer the late local news having a full closure by the presenter or the local weather presenter handing over to the national forecast?

First option for me.

Not a fan of any news bulletin not having a proper close - including the network bulletins handing over to the regional news. A few beeps to formally close the bulletin does no harm at all.


I'm going to be a proper dinosaur here and say I prefer them entirely separate, like back in the nineties.

I agree - it wouldn't be so bad if it was well done but more often or not the transfer from nations to regions is so jarring, and the headline sequence is already long enough as it is. I would at least cut from the 1pm and 10pm top of the show sequence.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

The retrograde step of re-merging the breakfast bulletins happened after years of separate Leeds/Hull breakfast bulletins, I'm sure.

Why this occurred (and why from Hull, considering that the original pan-region was always based in Leeds), who knows?

I thought at the time that it would either be a short-lived experiment or was testing the water for e.g. scaling back the Hull edition to a sub-opt (à la South Today from Oxford). Clearly not.

For non-news regional programmes (e.g. Inside Out, Sunday Politics, Late Kick-Off when that was still a thing) the original pan-region has never been split. I think the same applies to any occasional ad-hoc regional opt-out programmes across the whole of Yorks & Lincs?

Those shows are indeed still pan-regional, although there was one a few years back about rivers where Hull teamed up with East Midlands, because it was more relevant than the Leeds one. Hull have done the odd regional programme on their own, though.

Not sure why the golf would’ve delayed Reith in NI surely the “Twelfth Fortnight” which is a week either side of the 12th July holiday would’ve had an effect. This is traditionally when people in NI take holidays either to celebrate, or to escape the marching. If staff would’ve taken annual leave they may have wanted to delay it.
