On a very clear day, you can actually see the area of high ground Belmont sits on from Hunstanton.

There's another area of relatively high ground that separates the north and north west corner of Norfolk and stops Tacolneston coming through.

In this part of Hunstanton, you'll see some two aerial solutions - one for the correct BBC and ITV regional services and one for the full set of services from Freeview:

In recent years, satellite has offered a less cumbersome option to get the right region.

Remember, Belmont was until 1974 an Anglia transmitter, great for Norfolk, but what about the parts of Yorkshire it serves ?


Anglia had premises in Hull to cover the northern part of the old region.

How long has the promo for Calendar after the Chase been shots of the Leeds Studios with Duncan saying "... Calendar is next."? No headlines?

Back in the day the tv announcer said “ this is BBC ONE for Hull, Sleaford and Hunstanton”


Was that during the early-ish years of Look North (Hull edition), when the region name was being given as "BBC One Lincs & E Yorks" and/or "BBC One E Yorks & Lincs"?

Did they mix it up, by saying different combinations of three place names (one from E Yorks, one from Lincs, one from NW Norfolk) each time?

They did do that, for example, in this video the place names are Hull, Gainsborough and Hunstanton:

That studio looks tiny especially for two people. Interesting to see the presenters in vision before the continuity finishes.

That was their first studio above radio Humberside’s headquarters before they moved to queens gardens

A long established tradition on Look North to blend the continuity into the start of the programme

I remember them ending up on BBC Two and the bounce ident soundtrack really not working behind the opening of Look North

From memory, the Leeds edition of Look North used to do the same during that era.

No attempt to disguise the seams which give away the fact that the "window" is made out of four 4:3 TV screens, I see... Shocked

Had 16:9 TV sets not made it to Yorkshire yet?! At least they're frameless and flat-screen, I suppose. "Video walls" in the era of Cathode Ray Tube tellies etc were always dreadful.

Midlands Today's "window" during this era was originally made from a pair of 16:9 screens, each in portrait orientation and placed side-by-side. There was a "window frame" including a central vertical bar to cover the seam. It was eventually replaced with a single larger screen, at least big enough to equal if not exceed the previous 2-screen "window" size.

Yes I recall that, you had the bouncy soundtrack over the intro!

Also, the last headline in the link above has certainly dated quite a bit Shocked
