I've never understood the separate pollen count. I thought, maybe due to the sport being sponsored, the pollen count sponsor would be to much within one 30-minute programme. I'm not sure if the ITV regions' sport slots have sponsorship?

The sponsor is probably the only reason they do the Pollen Count.

Granada reports report has/d Fords of Wyndsor car sales as a sponser on the 6pm programme, a seperate sponsor for the weather and pollen counts.
You're watching ITV NEWS. This is Granada Reports!

I thought news was banned from having sponsorship - so only weather and pollen count should have them?

It'll be the Sports Report that's sponsored (working very well too, as it'll be Fords of Winsford, and nothing to do with the footwear chain).

Notice that this evening's STV News at Six is only 15 minutes long, with What's On Scotland occupying the remaining 15 minutes.

This seems a bit odd, given that it's not a bank holiday, together with the Christmas / New Year holiday period being over as of today.

Even Channel, the smallest region, is showing a full 30 minute programme, together with all other regions.

Surely it’s quite well known that Scotland has an extra bank holiday on the 2nd?

Anybody who ever looks at a calendar or diary and then comments how jealous they are that Scots are still off and they are back at work.

They get the extra bank holiday here, put they pay for it in Easter, when they do not get Easter Monday bank holiday.

On the whole though Scotland still gets one day extra in bank holidays per year (St Andrew's Day in November), and in Northern Ireland you get two extra!

True, shame England and Wales are not treated the same and given their respective saints days as a holiday.

Okay. Let’s start 2020 by ensuring people don’t spend the rest of the year utterly lacking any knowledge! The reason for the 2nd Jan holiday in Scotland is not:

A- Because Scots are lazy drunks and need another day off to recover.
B- Anything to do with getting one over the English (St Andrews Day is optional and it’s ‘recommended’ that companies who respect this as a day off [very few do!] agree to take another bank holiday back from staff entitlement.


We have the 2nd off because traditionally we celebrated ‘Hansel Day’ in Scotland on the 2nd January. In deeply Presbyterian Scotland, Christmas was actually banned for many years. To get round it, the 2nd January became a de facto Christmas Day. Very few people seem to know this anymore, although you’ll still encounter some older folk referring to ‘hanseling their house’ (cleaning the house to start afresh) or ‘hanseling a gift’ (handing a gift to someone as a small gesture).

Lesson over. Back to TV stuff!

When England, Wales and NI gained New Year's Day as a holiday in 1971, Scotland gained 2nd January in addition to New Year's Day.
