There's a Broadcast article today about Ofcom tightening the Nations and Regions rules where PSBs are obliged to produce a certain amount of programmes outside London. It's got this interesting nugget:
Elsewhere, Ofcom has closed the loophole that allowed PSBs to count self-promotional content as out of London content.
In 2017, ITV’s late-night show info reel ITV Nightscreen, which is made in the Midlands, accounted for 600 hours of programming, more than twice that of any of its other OOL productions. Had it not been counted, the broadcaster would have missed by two percentage points its target for 35% of its main channel output hours to be OOL.
So with the loophole closed this could mean we finally see the end of Nightscreen which has no doubt been continuing purely to take advantage of it.
Can't see Nightscreen ending any time soon, as it must be very cheap to produce, and is probably cheaper than repeats.
The only realistic alternative would be teleshopping, but that seems unlikely to happen, given that it seems to have disappeared from ITV now. If it was going to come back, it would have happened when Jackpot 24/7 ended.
