Personally I couldn't see Border moving, they haven't been a Network production base.

Where as Border only has one main studio, that's used for Border News/Lookaround, so I couldn't see it happening.


What about Mr and Mrs?


Border have more than one main studio. There is another building further down the road from the main Border TV building, that is where the tranmitter is, and there are studios there too. The main building houses the offices and news studios.

First I've ever heard of a tran(s)mitter in Carlisle itself.

Oh, sounds like I did not miss much, then.

It depends what you wanted to see, there was behind the scenes of the old studios, behind the scenes of the new, various reporters were seen, the building of the new studio etc.

Also featured the disaster they had during the storms the other week where water started pouring in at both studios and there was a power cut at Teeside

For some reason its' turned into a generic thread discussing Border which has no relation to the programme at all!

A nice programme I thought, particularly as it finally gave me a chance to recatch that 1959 ident (I've been waiting for that again since the 1999 birthday tape snapped Wink).

The editing of it must have been finished very close to transmission mind, given they were featuring footage from the Saturday's first broadcast.

Very much so Tes. The more observant of you may have noticed that only the first part of the programme had any name captions, in a nice generic Serif format, obviously done using fairly old equipment, presumably at City Road. Chances are that equipment like that is no longer available now they've moved to an office block as opposed to a true studio complex.

This programme is essentially a chronicle of the final death of TTTV as a television station. With only one non-news studio, and now to all intents and purposes a clone of Meridian South, without its own personal stamp on things, it is truly just a regional office of ITV plc in all but name. And to add insult to injury, is isn't even based in the region's capital any more.

It is striking that since 1996, all references that the station ever had its own presentation department have been deleted. In past occasions that called for archive footage, Adrian Cairns and John Lloyd have been present on the archive footage of that first night, and other caps of pres since then of in-vision continuity were used. Now they are notable only by their absence.

Sorry, suppose I mean a TV mast of some sort.

That mast is Carlisle's BT Tower. It provided the microwave links up to Caldbeck, and perhaps still does ?.
