Central News South was the regional news programme I grew up with, and I always found it a cut above many other larger ITV (and BBC) regional offerings.
Well, considering that CNsouth's BBC rivals are Midlands Today in the west, which would discuss news as far away as Newcastle-under-Lyme, and (when you were growing up) Newsroom South East in the east, which would discuss news as far away as Dover (!) it's hardly a surprise that you favoured CNsouth!!!!!
Oh absolutely! I always thought it was a bit of a poor reflection on the Beeb that a commercial channel could provide a decent local news programme relevant to where I lived whilst the BBC as Britain's public service broadcaster gave us a load of Black Country news with only the occasional nod towards Cheltenham and Gloucester.
The point I was making though was that compared to a lot of other regional news programmes (not just in the CNS area) it outshone them in terms of presentation, style and professionalism.
