I love split views like this. I feel like it’d be a good project to marry as many things like that as possible

For this example, where were the breakdown slides and annos from? Was this from opting back to the STC? And why was this option chosen instead of handing over to an alternative region (most likely ITV West)?

Yes, though probably limited opportunities to do lots, it depends on coincidently having recordings of the same thing from different stations.

There is a great one somewhere of the same junction on 3 ITV stations

At a guess, the studio put up that still of the titles as they evacuated (possibly expecting it to be a still of the title card) then whichever transmission centre looks after Wales went into the breakdown routine. Possibly Leeds given the recorded anno rather than the live announcer that would have been available if London/Chiswick did it? I guess they would take an alternative region once the situation was understook and they knew resuming the programme wouldn't be possible.
Write that down in your copybook now.

Here's a technical fault from Sky Sports from 2009 where the South American World Cup 2010 Qualifier match between Brazil and Peru falls off the air not once but twice

And for the record, Brazil won the game 3-0

That's TV and Local Television Ltd are the Carlton and Granada of local tv

A weird thing on the USA golf highlights, on sky sports golf. When they go to an ad break, or come back sky are running the titles twice, two different ones. They play them both then either go to the ad break or the coverage.
