What is the South Version? Wasn't that Sheffield? Surely Hull and Lincolnshire should be Calendar East?
BBC Look North
If I recall, there are some viewers in Sheffield who get Calendar East/Look Levy from Belmont as it's stronger than Emley.
(Leeds & Hull) is a west/east split, with the Hull version covering primarily Lincs, E Yorks, and N-NW bits of Norfolk. But it's also receivable in certain bits and bobs of S Yorks, including Sheffield.
ITV News Calendar
is instead a north/south (-ish) split, with the "South" version covering both the same area as the BBC's Hull version of Look North plus also the whole S Yorks/N Derbyshire/N Nottinghamshire area.
Once upon a time the S Yorks etc area was a 3rd Calendar sub-region on its own (Calendar South, from Sheffield), before being wholly merged with the traditional Calendar East area in more recent history to form the current larger "South". Therefore, viewers in e.g. Sheffield or Chesterfield do not get the W&N Yorks version of Calendar.
