Somewhat unrelated question:
A few years ago, I remember reading that united news and media designed a generic set of endcaps, idents etc for Meridian, Anglia and HTV, but for some reason or another it was never broadcast. Does anyone have any captures of this, or even remember anything about this? I really hope this isn't the product of my imagination!
UNM used the endcaps, they were shown from about 1997 until Granada gobbled up UNM's ITV Stations. They were nothing exciting, just the 'un' logo with either the Anglia/Meridian/HTV logos printed underneath on a blue background.
I also believe that between 1998 and 1999 both Anglia and Meridian had the 'i t v' logo on the top left of their respective idents, though HTV never did. Also looking from sites such as TV Ark, again both Anglia and Meridian produced generic 'Spirits of...' promos, either for the East or South etc, again not recall of a HTV one.
