UTV weather forecasts

(June 2005)

A few Sundays ago, I caught a UTV weather bulletin featuring the announcer (in this case, Robin Taylor) in-vision. However, last night's bulletin following the 2250 news was not presented in-vision but just done with a voiceover - Aidan Browne wasn't on our screens.

Is there some kind of rule to how UTV's short weather bulletins are presented? Are they only in-vision at weekends?

Invision presenters at weekends is a recent development at UTV. previously the only in vision broadcast was at 5:55pm, usually with frank mitchell.

Looks like London are producing UTV's forecasts to accommodate in-vision presenters... and just now the forecast had a Lynda Bryans voiceover. Rolling Eyes

Followed by another "grand in the hand" Watch to Win. Surprised Julian hasn't rolled out his "living off two eggs beat up in a cup" phrase as well.

Also, have UTV done away with break bumpers? Any breaks I have seen over the past few weeks haven't featured any.

There must have been an advertisment for that weather line thing after the weather, I only ever watch the UTV forcast for the tune.

12.45pm, and the Big Blue Break Bumper is back!

And it takes someone who doesn't live in NI anymore to open his gob to get things moving.

And again ten minutes later.

Now please get some daytime announcers at Havelock House!!!

UTV only use the breakbumper when they remember!!
I was shocked last week with they used the black UTV ident/breakbumper which matches their other idents of cows in fields, landscapes etc.

UTV dont even use the UTV day idents all the time during the day, the number of times I have seen their "normal" black idents during daytime programmes.

Do any regions other than UTV still have out of vision forecasts? Tyne Tees sometimes just have the voiceover during the day - but I can't think of any other regions that have them.

STV, Grampian and Channel also have OOV forecasts.

I've only seen OOV forecasts on Tyne Tees during GMTV - the rest of the time it's Bob or the Leeds team.

London Today has OOV weather during the mid-morning bulletin, voiced by whoever has presented the GMTV London bulletins (usually the presenter of the national ITV Morning News).

I've seen Out of Vision on all the daytime forecasts at some point, but it doesn't happen very often. Leeds very rarely does daytime bulletins, so it's usually when Bob's not around, but will be later in the day.

Apart from the GMTV forecasts, which are done by the person presenting the bulletin, the voiceover is always done by the same man - no idea who it is though.

No in-vision forecast at 12.40pm or 5.35pm... no Gilly in pink.

Perhaps it depends on the announcer whether or not the weather will be in-vision - as Robin Taylor often does his continuity links in-vision maybe he wishes to do weather bulletins that way. Does Audra ever do the weather in-vision?
