Central (West) Midlands Today
All the Central News West revamps every few months certainly kept their graphics and set designers busy! I'm still looking for clean copies of the 1988 West intro, sting and summary to go with my outro and East version - I'll put another plea over on the request page Crying or Very sad

Woah! Westcounty Live, a lovely set let down by that awful backdrop that is seen through most of the programme - inside I'm screaming just looking at it!


Not sure I'd describe that set as lovely. Apricot and dark wood coupled with a Unicol plasma stand and some bizarre blue swooshes (nodding to the sea?)? Looks like it's been squeezed into a corner too.

That was a very short-lived set which only lasted around 3 years. It was launched in 2002, was adapted in 2004 following the ITV plc merger, and then was changed to the generic ITV set in 2005.

I quite like them, never thought of the sea connection, but of course they're the shape of the region.

Very similar to the livery of First Great Western they introduced a few years later *

Channel TV still don't have a replacement male presenter on their local programme so Matt teale covered Monday to Wednesday this week, then back on Central Thursday. He is due to be back over to Jersey next week too.

Wesley Smith seems to be popping up a lot at the moment with summer hols being covered. He has presented the last couple of Friday late bulletins. Always a pleasure to see him on screen. Will we ever see him as a main anchor again with his own region I wonder.
