I know it's off topic, but weren't UK Gold and UK Living unrelated?
No, Gold was launched by Thames the BBC and a company called Cox in 1992 and Living by the same group in 1993.
The BBC involvement in UK Living was less, it was more a Thames project, coming from Teddington Studios. However the procedure was - for UK Living at least - in such a circumstance to point towards the BBC, rather than Sky News like the others on Skys package
I thought the reason why they changed their name to Living TV was to disassociate itself from the UKTV brand.
Yes, when UKTV launched things were rejiggled, Flextech were involved and took Living and the UKTV side got UK Gold. Hence the name change
