I suspect it was an Emley only opt and Belmont stayed with network.


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)
I'm still a European.

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

Leeds is slightly newer than Hull.
Write that down in your copybook now.

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.
