Did you all get that completely generic report about 'snow on the way' on your regional news tonight?

A report from an unidentifiable gritter depot, generic scenes of snowy motorways and an interview with a man captioned only as "A councillor"

You can usually notice the syndicated content as they end 'Lauren Hall, ITV News' but this one was particularly noticeable.

Surprisingly she name checked "the Calendar region" at the start of our report, normally her reports are just completely generic and contain no reference to the regions they go out to. Regarding that awful "Calendar region" phrase, it seems that tonight's edition was a game of who could mention it the most; nearly every report or link used it at some point.


She should have said "the ITV Yorkshire region".

Since the evning news has gone solo the directors used different camera angles which are interesting. As has already been mentioned they also now use the big News at Ten screen. Maybe they are trying out new shots as they might update the virtual set to match News at Ten.

I recall that they did that in February 2009 - the year after News at Ten returned.

"The Calendar Region" is used to appease the good people of Lincolnshire and North Derbyshire who don't like being told they are in Yorkshire

Should be North East Derbyshire. North West Derbyshire gets a choice of up to four regional services while North East Derbyshire can't receive ITV Central because... Derbyshire has to be awkward and hilly (and I don't help by watching West Country and Wales! via Satellite. Obviously!).

Does anyone know if there are changes going to be made to ITV News soon, as I was watching the Evening News just now and does anyone notice the look of it felt a bit different? Very close up camera shots of Mary, the opening panning of the programme felt as if they have moved into a small studio and the look just felt to me that they have moved out of Studio 2, maybe in time for a new look next week? Just my thoughts, wonder what people think?

I think they're just trying to be a little more creative in an uninspiring set.
