The Chart Show was a "Yorkshire Presentation for ITV" (Though I do have one from 1993 that's a Yorkshire PROGRAMME for ITV, and the episodes from 1989-1993 don't have an endcap at all), as are a couple of Nightscreens I have on video from 1998 (as well as one that's a "Granada Presentation for ITV"), they're the only examples I can think of though.

Nightscreen could hardly be a "presentation" in the scale of things, its just piping some Powerpoint slides (or whatever) down the broadcast chain. But yes technically its a presentation depending on I suppose where the Nightscreen slides come from, probably from some server somewhere.

Judging by the quality in the 90s I wouldn't be surprised if it came off a tape.

I first saw it on STV in late 98 and I'm pretty sure it was PowerPoint by then (might have a tape lying around somewhere). Didn't it start in the STV region some time after everyone else though? I never did see it in its Teletext incarnation!

Maybe STV had their own version of Nightscreen? I hardly think it makes sense for them to take an ITV branded one.

The VideotapeFTW channel is always interesting to keep an eye on on YouTube.

Here's a lesser known production that Lee Pressman wrote, comparisons to Rentaghost are inevitable:


And two episodes of Delta Wave (1996), an unofficial sort of sequel to The Tomorrow People from the same writers.


And just for fun, here's Andrew Sachs as Manuel in a 1990s advert for the Halifax, just to somewhat prove their currently advertising trend of jumping on somebody else's creation isn't a new thing:

Hollywood or Bust. One of Brucie's forgettable programmes, a shame there are no YouTube videos of it.


There are dozens of episodes of Brucie's US quiz Hot Streak on YouTube but not one second of Hollywood or Bust. Certainly the format sounds like it should be classic Brucie, basically the plays from the Generation Game spun off into their own show.

Brucie gives it pretty short shrift in his autobiograhy, he says that he thought they needed a second series for it to really take off, but there was some sort of issue regarding who owned the format so there wasn't.
