BBC One English Regions opt outs

Minor flurry of regional content (August 2019)

I suspect it was an Emley only opt and Belmont stayed with network.
Write that down in your copybook now.

That’s my recollection.

Usually the branding is BBC Yorkshire if it’s a Leeds-only opt, with BBC Yorks & Lincs for pan-regional or Hull-only output.

The Channel Islands are the other area that see different regional identifiers - the idents are Channel Islands branded before their own opts and South West for pan-regional stuff from Plymouth.

I don’t like the pan regional breakfast bulletins from Hull, I thought it was fine separate

Having gone to the bother of creating the full Leeds/Hull split for all bulletins in the first place, I'd be interested to know why the blithering flip the Breakfast bulletins subsequently reverted to being pan-regional at all. (And why from Hull, considering that the original pan-region was Leeds-based)

In generally, "Yorkshire" is Emley only. "Yorkshire and Lincolnshire" could be Belmont only or Belmont and Emley.
Write that down in your copybook now.

Wouldn't Hull's studio facilities be newer, and thus more up to date?

Of course Leeds’s facilities is also still in use at breakfast time as that’s where they do the weather from for both this version and Newcastle

Leeds is slightly newer than Hull.

That's right, as the schedules confirm...

I realise this isn't related to an English region, but wasn't sure where else to post this, as I didn't think it warranted a new thread.

I noticed that last week's episode of Mavericks: Sport's Lost Heroes, a regional programme in Wales, included a credit to "HTV" in the end credits.

Was a bit surprised to see this, especially on a new programme. It's normally "ITV Wales" or "ITV Cymru Wales", and haven't seen "HTV" for a long time.

When BBC One originally launched on Sky, it only had four regions - England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 (also available for the Channel Islands), Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿, Northern Ireland 🇮🇪 and Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿, and you could only view one (depending on the post code of your viewing card). They would air UK Today and, in England, tell people to press TV then 1 for their local news. BBC Two was entirely national until 2002-2004-ish but the BBC Choice regions could be viewed anywhere. Yeah, Myina did her research Wink

Technically BBC One Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are Nations, not Regions.
