at the end of a regional program on itv1wales (the ferret) this was the production slate that was shown:-

This is also shown at the end of the news aswell! Maybe Carlton has ceased to exist now?

Today with Des and Mel was still a Carlton Production!


Is it live or recorded?


Today's edition would have been filmed today (Des and Mel were looking at today's newspaper). However, I've been invited to a recording of Des and Mel's show one evening next week, and surprisingly not at lunchtime as I thought.


It depends on the guests doesn't it? I have noticed on some shows that they do the first 15 minutes live, then have a recorded guests slot (such as Rod Stewart who swore, and therefore it was bleeped out for playing out on the supposedly live lunchtime show).

At the end of Inspitations, ITV1 Wales current 2.30pm regional program each weekday, they had a Carlton endcap. Although this could be because the program was made ages ago and they forgot to change it.

I noticed a new 'ITV Central" endcap at the end of Central NewsWeek today saying 'An ITV Production'.

However, Central Newsweek in the West were using the old Central News theme....not the one they've just finished using in favour of the national news theme...no, the one before that! Which I didn't understand.

And also, why are they still using 'ITV1 for Central England' idents when Bob said the new station is called 'ITV Central'?

So, now we've got Carlton endcaps, new ITV Central endcaps, ITV1 for Central England idents and old Central News theme tunes???

What's going on??? Shocked

It looks exactly like this (apart from having the word "Central" in place of "Wales", obviously):

Yes, it is all a bit of a mess at the moment. I suppose it's a case of... programmes recorded/edited before a certain date have now-out-of-date endcaps. So the phasing out/phasing in will take a while. But I'm sure everything will be consistant eventually (certainly by the end of 2004).

Do you still get those nice landscape regional idents in Central for regional programmes? We never got anything like that in Granadaland, and now we don't get anything at all - just the national ITV1 idents. Rubbish!

Is that the theme tune which both West and East used (although I don't think at the same time?)?

I notice that Westcountry Update has now become 'Westcountry News Update' and uses the standard short news titles with 'Update' at the bottom.

I'm still disappointed to see Westcountry not bothering with credits on their news output, and they also no longer get to plug their websites. I hope they sort this out soon.

Also, it would seem that all regional output (not just news) is now 'An ITV Production'. Yet regional production brands (for the moment at least) are still being applied to network productions. That seems the unlikelest place to preserve them.

I would have thought they'd want to keep them in use in the regions, but discard them on the network.

yep, although central west's was a far more upbeat version.

is central newsweek west still from the sofa with andy bevan an jo malin? i always seem to be at work when its on nowadays. they really made an effort with the show after the 2001 relaunch with lifestyle features and what not - remember when jo vacuumed the set Laughing Laughing

i do hope it has not been relegated back to a central news omnibus from the virtual studio with dot/harjit doing the signing for the deaf.

Sorry if this has been mentionned elsewhere but what endcaps are Central using now??? I have been at work all day and haven't seen any regional programmes on the new look ITV1 yet.

Please let us know. Cheers.


They are still using "A Carlton Production for Central England"


ITV1 Wales also had "A Carlton Production for ITV1 Wales" at the end of their 2.30pm regional programme last week. However im not sure what they did at the end of Waterfront and Soccer Sunday as I missed them.

Yes, it was created for CNeast ages before the CNwest revamp that I have mentioned above. It got a bit rearranged/remixed for CNwest, so the two sub-regions' themes didn't sound precisely the same. Not long after CNwest adopted the remixed-CNeast-theme, CNeast themselves had a complete change of theme tune IIRC! Rolling Eyes
