Network branding issues (September 2003)

Only UK games are 16:9 normally, but Sky Sports had Rangers in 4:3 for some reason

Hmmm -surely you can see that the ITV1 match (manchester united) was in pure 16:9 (as you put it!) - shown below.

Whereas the ITV2 match (chelsea) was actually broadcast in 16:9 but the action was only within a 4:3 portion contained within it ie - a 4:3 match!

Also ITV Sport had its very own spider for a few minutes of the second half!

As said previously, games on the continent are generally broadcast in 4:3, while the games in the UK are 16:9.

I think SKY will broadcast every match in 4:3 due to the interactive nature of the broadcasts - one thing less for them to mess up I imagine.

I do like the new 'curtains' that are on ITV2 though.. and i'm surprised they never used the Scottish and Grampian logos on the menu.

Did Scottish, Grampian, and UTV change their idents on 1st September. If they're using the old ones that might be why - they don't want to modify the graphics mid-season. That's probably why ITV2's logo was out of date as well.

Does that make sense to anyone?

A couple of ITV Sport related schedule changes to look out for on ITV1 :

Sunday 28th September

6pm ITV News
6.15pm F1: USA Grand Prix Live
9pm Boudica

no Corrie, Heatbeat etc. scheduled.

Tuesday 30th September

5pm Regional News
5.15pm Champions League Live
7.30pm ITV Evening News

with News at Ten scheduled for 10pm as well.

Although these listings are still subject to change, Digiguide have slotted Coronation Street in at 4.45pm which must be wrong as ITV would probably rather put regional programming here and Corrie directly before the Grand Prix.



Then on the Tuesday, the Celtic game is on at the normal time meaning STV, Grampian and Border Scotland are showing football from 5.15pm until 10pm, presented by Jim Delahunt

Hi, they are available from www.radiotimes.co.uk in the listings section. They go up to Tuesday 30th September, but the listings aren't fully complete and may be subject to change.

AFAIK STV and Grampian are still using the pre-Sept 1 look.

UTV has changed its trailers but not its ident(s). (Theoretically it has the full set pre Sept 1st + their own ones. In practice... they use only that damn blue ident!)
