Not sure if this has ever happened before but on this afternoon's This Morning programme we were subject to regional news from the regions being shown from every region across the whole of britain!

It was very well done and each local news reader handed over to the next and was a bit of feat for ITV1!

Did anyone else see it???

They were prepackaged items (perhaps some were live, you couldn't tell) on what has happened in your ITV1 region for the Golden Jubilee - presented in batches. I caught Grampian, Ulster and Granada earlier. It reminded me of the old ITV Telethon "so let's find out what's happening across the country!"

i mentioned this in the other itv jubilee thread, i musn't have seen this one at the time.

it was a nice idea, it certainly worked better than the bbc's stupid music live nonesense.

central did the midlands proud with their use of the proper set, and calling it the central region (rather than the other c word). i also think sitting on the desk is a great idea, and should be done more often.

shame they didnt zoom out further to show the bunting they put up around the top of the set for the jubilee

so you are saying that ITV, by going round 15+ or so regions to get the latest on the jubilee is better than the BBC's massive Jubilee 2002 and Music Live events. my god, i've never heard someone talk so much crap out of their arses.

the BBC won hands down yesterday. and as for people on this forum saying that the Jubilee 2002 and Music Live brands clashed, and that the BBC were using it as a publicity stunt, that is **** as well. the bit at the end of yesterday's concert where prince charles made a speech, the BBC allowed the other broadcasters to join up live then to broadcast the speech, they could have superimposed a BBC logo somewhere on that feed, but did they? NO. in fact I hardly saw the music live brand used at the concerts. note also how prince charles paid respect to the BBC for their work, but had nothing to say about other broadcasters.

don't get me wrong, ITV's coverage of the jubille has been good, but the BBC really have been superior. ITV could never have organised the 2 concerts in the palace, they just don't have the respect and ability that the BBC have. the BBC is known around the world, and it is likely that someone in the US would have heard of the BBC, through either watching BBC America, or BBC World News on the local PBS stations (a nice fact: the evening BBC World News simulcast on the local PBS station in New York regulaly gains more viewers than CNN) but would have never heard of ITV, Central, Granada, Carlton etc.

i wish people would just face facts and see that the BBC is superior to ITV in many ways, it has a much better respectibilty than ITV, more commitment. ITV has its times of superior coverege of events, but mostly its the BBC that rule, noted by the fact that 99.9% of the time, any event such as World Cup matches, this Jubileee, that is covered by the BBC and ITV, BBC always gains the most viewers.

You are so full of crap that it makes my sides hurt!

You actually believe all this propaganda which makes you even more sad. You cannot even begin to understand the politics behind the events of the last couple of days and why the bbc covered the majority of the events rather than other stations (not just ITV1)

Go deeper and think about what is really happening and see if you have got anything worth while to add to this thread as all you have put upto now is how great the BBC is (yawn) Get real and open your eyes to what is really going on!

notice the way i was refering to the music live nonesense. i was in no way refering to the party at the palace , which (as much as the bbc would have liked them to be), are not related.

the party at the palace was second to none - and i cannot think of any other organisation who could have produced the show so well.

i am just making the point that the bbc would have been better off concentrating on the party at the palace. music live IS ****, and is no doubt the project of some sad middle-aged person who thinks it is the best way to get in touch with young people.

i honestly think the bbc should have just had david dimbleby provide updates on the preperations for the party, and then introduce a decent line up of films or something.

and about the BBC news in the US, i was also under the impression that ITN also (until recently) produced a succesfull news show for the US - so im sure ITN is fairly well known too.

Up until its demise - I believe that the ITN World News was broadcast on PBS in the US - so I'm sure they are just as well known as the BBC in that respect.

Music Live was crap as tvmercia has pointed out - Party at the Palace however was a fantastic production and the BBC deserves a lot of credit for it. Even if they did try to put it under the "Music Live" banner and seemed to take over the show a bit. It would have maybe been nice to see a joint effort between ITV and BBC - like the Queen's Speech which is on rotation each year.

Sounds like a simple idea nicely done.

Pity they didn't have their presenters out and about though - surely 15+ studio sets for linking must have been a bit dull for anyone apart from us TV obsessed types? On the other hand - it's pretty simple to get 15+ studio feeds into London Studios (and the comms to work) - bit more difficult to co-ordinate them if they are OBs or satellite contributions.

Any idea if they were live or recorded?
