I think the only reassignment of ITV regions after 1982, was in 2009 when the Isle of Man was moved from Border to Granada ?


Don't forget Berwick switched to tt at the same. I'm also sure south Oxfordshire switched to meridian.



Some threads about Berwick – I hadn't realized it changed. Was it December 2006 when it switched from Selkirk to Chatton?

Oh yes, you're right. That reminds me, also at DSO in the Granada and YTV regions, some relays
that were split between BB and ITV regions near the Lancs/Yorks border were unified (which was the reason why Berwick moved from Border to TTT too)

I think also the Lincoln relay moved from Central East to YTV, (to match the BBC's arrangement) ?

Lincoln was the other way around: BBC East Midlands to BBC E Yorks & Lincs. ITV Yorkshire was always there.

Ashbourne went from ITV Central West to East joining BBC East Midlands as part of the alignment process.

Interesting that Ridge Hill's PSB2 West multiplex that allows N Gloucestershire to choose between ITV Central or ITV West is changing soon to QSPK mode with a reduction in power.

And there must have been a reason for displaying the then Network 2's schedule *above* that of RTE1.

After the ITV regions (which are shown alphabetically), the "other channels" are also shown the same way: Network2, RTE1, S4C. Very Happy


Makes sense for this 30-year-old loyal Guardian reader, who has in fact been living in Ireland for 16 of those 30 years. Laughing

Thanks. Wink
I prefer the second Grange Hill theme tune to "Chicken Man". Does that make me weird?
