Wow 7 minutes of footage there... lots of great bits there!

Antony and Lucy were a great pairing. It makes you realise how Lucy and Tony nowadays just don't have anywhere near the same chemistry despite presenting together for nearly 14 years now.

Although to be fair ITV now is effectively Granada.

As for the argument regional TV died because 100s of extra channels compete for the revenue - 90% of those don't get the ratings any individual region would, so I'd still say if there was a will that more regional content would be viable. The reason it's died on ITV is because profits go straight to shareholders rather than into programming.
