Well it wouldn't work with CI. When Plymouth went down and came from Bristol, the Islands could only put their bulletins on social media.


That 6:30pm "Points West & Spotlight" presented from PW's usual Bristol studio/set did include one (or two?) CI story/stories as well as a smattering of South West stories. This confirmed - if there was any doubt! - that the namestraps are burnt in to CI's reports.

They were the only namestraps that animated on/off that evening, as the namestraps generated in Bristol can only mix/fade on and off. They were also of course "BBC Channel Islands"-branded, whereas all of the Bristol-generated namestraps that evening went with the neutrality of just "BBC" with no other words after it.

Because CI's packages are edited in Final Cut Pro I believe and the astons are templates in that.
Oh it's such a perfect day, I'm glad I spent it with you...

Tonight's ITV News West Country lead with a live pan-regional segment about the latest twists & turns of the Brexit saga.

The title sequence and opening headlines were sub-regional, with no mention whatsoever of the "possible general election" Brexit news. The brief studio presenters shot during the opening spiel had the relevant sub-regional outdoor backdrop.

After the post-headlines sting, the presenters had the CGI gallery backdrop behind them, and threw to political correspondent David Wood live in Westminster. They also had a live OB at a pro-EU demonstration in Taunton (a town considered to be an editorial overlap of both West Country sub-regions).

The programme finally split into two at 6:10pm. The final moments leading up to the join were the presenters reading out Contact Us / social media details, accompanied by full-screen graphics of the same information. When the studio shot returned, the outdoor backdrop had been reinstated.

We had the fully live edition here in the East ("HTV" land), as the very next item after the 6:10pm join was another Brexit-related OB from Gloucester, with the on-screen location graphic stating "Live" (which is obviously avoided for pre-recorded OBs).

Once again there were live pan-regional sections of ITV News West Country tonight to cover Brexit developments, albeit just 6:01pm-6:05pm and 6:28pm-6:30pm on this occasion.

We got the otherwise pre-recorded edition, here in the East sub-region. (Given away by the lack of "Live" bugs on OBs from Cheltenham and Bridgwater)

Kudos to Inside Out South West this evening who dumped the green screen nonsense and had a special about the Mayflower with Jemma doing links between the VTs on location.
