ITV Breakdown

(July 2001)

There's just been a Breakdown on ITV.

Apparently there is a 'No worries Weekend with Mark Little' taking place throughout the night this weekend.

Well, at 11.35pm when it was supposed to start, a static caption of what looked like could be the first frame of some special opening titles were shown for ages.

Then about 1 minute later, the YTV announcer appeared (who was probably getting her coat on!) and said 'We're having some worries with the No worries weekend, please bear with us...' (mmm..Very amusing NOT!)

Some breakdown music then appeared

Shortly afterwards the generic ITV caption came up, and cut the music off, so we were back into silence.

About 30 seconds later, the music came back and the announcer started reading out erm... what was erm coming up.

Such programmes as 'Dial a Date' didn't go well with the classical music.

About a minute later we were able to rejoin the NWW with ML and the start of the first programme.

So by the looks of things, the whole first live junction was missed! a good start!

The longest breakdown I've seen on ITV for a while and the first time in ages for breakdown music to be played on ITV.

That's quite witty for an ITV announcer Very Happy

Except for the fact that she used the same phrase 3 times!
