UTV viewers sat complete silence the whole time as we don’t have live continuity measures, not even some music!

Which is appalling really.

Indeed, really poor. Not even some standby recorded annos?! Smaller channels have these as the basics.


Considering the breakdown slide doesn't actually use any ITV branding, it's a wonder that they didn't just put the CA out on UTV as well. I know he mentioned ITV specifically when talking about the breakdown, but he could have easily avoided mentioning the channel name!

This is why Holly and Phil need a Late Night Talk Show. There funny to watch and would make brilliant viewing.


I was listening to an interview with Phil and I had no idea he was prepared to leave the show unless Holly was cast as Fern's replacement.

They are just great mates at the end of the day and so there's no effort required to put effort into forming chemistry. I don't like Dancing On Ice but I'm glad it is the reason they met. Whoever put them together needs a raise.

Strangely there appears to be no YouTube caps of it.

Even more strangely... BBC News has us covered once again... they've recently uploaded a video of the breakdown.

Can somebody please screencap and post it on YouTube? The BBC player wont work for me no matter what browser I use.
Change back to ITV1, as it's less confusing than calling the channel ITV and calling the company ITV!

So it seems that the issue was the feed(s) from the studio at the South Bank getting to ITV pres, due it seems to an issue at BT Tower. How come some regions got the Greenwhich Data Switch slate and others got Slough? Is it down to whether the region is handled by Chiswick or Leeds?
Write that down in your copybook now.

UTV is an ITV station - always has been. It would have been entirely acceptable to just hard-switch the entire output to the ITV feed to cover a technical problem.

Completely different to general branding.

Listen 3 minutes onwards

"If Holly doesn't do it then I might have to think about what I'd do" ... "so I sort of threatened" - Don't mess with the Schofe Cool

I expect that Holly and Phil will quit together when the time comes. I imagine ITV has a list of people who they can replace them with as a contingency plan.
