Not sure what you mean but I’m saying if they scrapped the show with both kelly-Ann and John joint presenting they would have to have a show for the east probably presented by Kelly-Ann and a show for the west presented by John. Like it was before they merged them and had the two presenters.



If thats your area from which I gather but as Gary explains
"There is one bulletin now from Central Scotland presented from both Glasgow and Edinburgh. The only time it 'opts out' is for local stories and the sport. Other than that, what you see in Kilmarnock is what you see in Kirkcaldy"

The only other thing I add and its only for me is STV North with it bulletins and I believe that our area will split and return as pre-covid as far as I understand it (unless something has changed but I don't know anything)...

Yes sorry I just misunderstood.


no need to say sorry Smile

STV are showing a documentary later this month to mark the 40th anniversary of the start of Take The High Road.

I'm surprised this wasn't shown earlier in the year, given that it started in February 1980.

DOCUMENTARY: Scotland Loves High Road
On: STV
Date: Wednesday 12th August 2020 (starting in 10 days)
Time: 20:00 to 20:30 (30 minutes long)

Emma Cameron presents a special programme celebrating 40 years of Take the High Road, looking back on the show and the impact it left behind.
(New, Widescreen, Subtitles)

Marked By: 'Reminder: Scotland Loves High Road' and 'Category: Documentary' markers

It might be the case that STV were never really planning on celebrating the anniversary. Given the current situation, and lack of new programming to air, they may have thought this was a good, if not cheap way to fill a slot.

That might be the case if they were showing it in a slot normally used for regional programming, but it's actually being shown as an opt-out from Paul O'Grady's Animal Orphans, and is followed by a repeat of Sean's Scotland.

Paul O'Grady: for the Love of Dogs has been shown in that slot for the last few weeks, which STV haven't opted out of.

This is actually the wrong forum for news related programming. But, anyway, Emma was actually presenting from a Aberdeen at lunchtime. And the STV News at Six will also be from Aberdeen all week.

I know but I couldn’t find the news forum. Oh I didn’t know what the Aberdeen studio was like sorry, so no return of the central show? Has something happened at Glasgow that they have moved up to Aberdeen?

No. Planned rotation during the pandemic and holiday season.

Animal Orphans is a repeat whereas Love of Dogs wasn't so that could be a reason.

The High Road tribute is getting a pasting elsewhere - comments about it scraping the barrel and STV being out of touch with their audience.

Personally, I don't see anything wrong with it. Its no different to the old episodes of EastEnders, Corrie, River City etc that have been aired recently and it looks like location filming has been done for it (photo of Emma Cameron in Luss on the digiguide page) so it's not all just old footage.

Why have they opted out of a relatively popular programme and not played the documentary in the slot that Scotland tonight is usually in. This is just my opinion but I think people would rather watch a programme about dogs since we’re a nation of dog lovers than a documentary about a show many of the younger generation won’t have even heard of Including myself and then a repeat of Sean’s Scotland.

The thing is that STV don’t think that when they opt out of shows, they’ll run with them or opt in later, in my own opinion it just seems STV doesn’t learn at all when scheduling programmes, at a guess that Paul O Grady programme isn’t repeated at the weekend either?

Strange to add why they can’t run after midnight before going to Nightscreen I guess? Saying that STV are just as bad when it came to films on ITV that were on late ran them one week behind then up to a point then reverted back to more Nightscreen (surprised at nights they can air this up to 5 hours!)

Aaaages ago there was a great video with some splitscreen gallery action and all of the different STV regions during the news. Does anyone have ANY idea where that was? I can't find it on YouTube at all.
