I'm sure I recall seeing Yorkshire presentation caps on the end of Home & Away or Shortland Street in the Central region.

Can't have been Shortland Street, I don't remember Yorkshire even airing it.

They did actually.

Yup, YTV showed Shortland Street but were a couple of years behind Central... but I really can’t see any reason either show would have a YTV Presentation slide outside of the Yorkshire region.

Did YTV show this after The Young Doctors finished and was the replacement ?

Yes, Young Doctors ended just before Christmas 1994, and Shortland Street debuted at the start of January. They even made a promo showing snippets from both shows to strongly imply one was replacing the other.

Would Sons and Daughters have been bought by Yorkshire for ITV? I seem to remember one of the characters from the show doing a promo a week before it first aired on YTV. The promo was done from the set of Sons and Daughters and went along the lines of "from next week viewers in Yorkshire will get a new drama from Australia following the drama of the....", or something along that line. It was defiantly Yorkshire pacific and the female actress even gave out the time and day it would first air.

Going back to Trident Television, I believe that in the 70s The Sky's The Limit was credited as a Yorkshire Production but several were actually recorded in Tyne Tees TV studios. Was this simply a case of using differing studios within Trident TV?

It also used to be the case in the 70s that most of the time each ITV company would show their own film with two exceptions, Channel who relayed Westward (I doubt that they would have had the facilities) and TTTV who generally showed whatever Yorkshire was playing. Presumably they would have used the same playout facilities but put their own end cap on.

Channel had 16mm TK facilities. They kept them alive for 10 weeks in 1979!

It's still a Yorkshire production if they are hiring Tyne Tees's studios. Famously a series of Mr and Mrs was recorded at Tyne Tees because Border didn't have a colour capable studio.

In later years this happened a lot more, eg Yorkshire recording some Countdowns at Tyne Tees, some Masterminds were made at Yorkshire because of asbestos work at Granada.
Write that down in your copybook now.

This also effected a number of episodes of the Dave Spikey era of Bullseye, which was due to be recorded at Granada, were in fact recorded at Yorkshire.

To an extent with Countdown, you could argue that the same principle has applied since 2009. The production office remains at Yorkshire but was filmed at Granada until 2013, before switching to MediaCity.
