UTV - From City Quays 2 onwards

Split from UTV rebrand

So looking ahead to next week, say Tuesday, I'm thinking:

"Hi there, what about yous, welcome to our Tuesday night line up here on UTV where...

A - "Robert tries to persuade Aaron..."
B - "Jai is under pressure from the staff..."
C - "Kerry is called in by the police..."

"...in Emmerdale."

Place your bets now.


I'm gonna say non of the above and that it will be 'D' and Gillian will be on duty on Tuesday.
Bring back the UTV!

Does anyone know when UTV life is back? I haven't seen it appear in a while or is it in a graveyard slot again?

First episode back was last Friday evening at 8pm. On at 8pm again this week too.

Its a shame that UTV Life is such a shadow of its former self. Such a boring studio, Pammy sat so far across the table from the guests on hard 'news chairs'.

I appreciate they are very tight on space in the studio etc, but when you look back to UTV Life at 5:30pm with Frank & Pammy, the big sofas etc much more of a relaxed friendly magazine type show compared to the UTV Life of today.

I agree it has certainly lost it's cosy and laid back style since the move. At least it is still Pammie at the helm though!

Pammie hosts it well.

Shame they don't just hire a proper studio with a nice background view of Belfast lough

I'm sure Pammie could get a good deal on a cosy new sofa from Connolly's of Moy.

Is this actually even a vague expectation? They have a perfect, cost effective set up now. They were never going to hire a separate studio just for UTV Life.

I imagine given the very twee type of programme it is, it probably not worth it money wise to get alternative studios to film it in. I imagine it doesn't even rate that well anyway but is kept to fulfil some locally made/PSB purposes and not because it has a legion of fans.

It probably does rate very well. Even in the last few years, the locally made shows have made it into the top 10 in the region. Shows that would probably sink without a trace elsewhere on the ITV network. I'm thinking here of Lesser Spotted Ulster and Rare Breed: A Farming Year.

Maybe I'm late to the party, so to speak, but with UTV switching to the Autumn batch of idents from Monday just gone, I've only just noticed this. 3 years late but better late than never...... Rolling Eyes

The concert ident, on UTV it pans from left to right



But on the ITV version the ident pans from right to left



So when making the UTV version, they have flipped the video around for some unknown reason?
I just thought when making UTV versions of ITV things, it was just a case of slapping a UTV logo over where the ITV one should be and job done!?

Maybe more time, effort and a bit of thought went into making the UTV idents than I originally thought?

Could this therefore also explain why the pigeons ident has a different soundtrack compared to the ITV original version?
Bring back the UTV!
