Just out of interest, who sponsors the regional weather on your ITV station, and what are the idents like.

For Yorkshire TV it's Yorkshire Electricity Home Services and you get a close up of a radiator or something equally fascinating. The music is awful, it's not really a tune, just a muffled mess of noise.

Scottish TV used to use Kwik-Fit (do you have that chain darn-sarth?) last time I watched.  It might not be now - I just cant bring myself to watch ITV.

At the risk of going off topic: Amerada is the re-vamped name for British Gas.  British Steel were renamed Corus in the same rush to re-brand.

A bit like the Post Office becoming Consignia !!!??!!Confused
