Interesting they name checked who'd be presenting both regions 6:30pm programmes at the end too.

That's what they did when London and the South East got a combined lunchtime bulletin from Tunbridge Wells for a big chunk of the spring/summer

Seems more planned; the weather map was both regions.


Or they had a few hours notice hence the bodge titles (some with usual names, the rest with North Today)

It doesn't take that long to zoom out on the weather graphics to show more areas.

Peter Levy has suggested the 6.30pm bulletin will go ahead...

How odd. I don't understand the logic of badging some of the shots with "North Today" (inculding one shot of Leeds) when other shots have the usual town/city names and the endboard still says Look North. My best guess is RDJ's analysis is right and what we've seen might've been an emergency sequence for if Salford and Hull both had to merge with Leeds, and presumably they just didn't have time to remove the shot of Manchester - though why they chose to go for the name North Today is a mystery to me.

Will be interesting to see what they do with the 6:30 news if the Hull edition can't go ahead.

I had a idea for a name for the merger. Pennines Today?

I'm not sure how viewers in the likes of Bridlington, Mablethorpe, or King's Lynn would feel about that name.

It would be a bit like calling the entire South Today region "Solent", all the way up to Banbury.

The presenter said at the end of the lunchtime bulletin that the East Yorkshire viewers will receive the 6:30 programme with Peter Levy as usual.

Did they not acknowledge/mention Lincolnshire at least (if not also NW Norfolk)?
