I thought the ident into the regional news programmes was played out from the regional studios? Or did that change when ITV started having new idents every week?
I had assumed this was still the case. I remember a year or two back on itv Granada seeing a generic ident one sunday followed by one with a announcement for Granada Reports.
One thing that I find strange is the mix of announcements across the different regions - Channel TV's is particularly annoying.
UTV could be a different though with them having almost 24/7 continuity automatically played out?
I reckon thinking about it that perhaps it is easy to add audio on the UTV feed without the full automation system? Perhaps it's not as easy to add different idents to multiple feeds as it was in the past as they don't pay for the full bells and whistles for all the regions and it requires additional operatives? Adverts will presumibly be loaded in very far in advance and would be dealt with by seperate technical staff?
