Closed 31 December 1981
Replaced by TSW

Westward Television was the first ITV franchise holder for the South West of England from 29 April 1961 until 31 December 1981. After a difficult start, Westward provided a popular, distinctive and highly regarded service to its region, until public boardroom squabbles led to its franchise not being renewed by the IBA. Westward launched the career of many broadcasters who became well known nationally, won numerous awards for its programming, and heavily influenced its successor, TSW.

Peter Cadbury, Chairman of Westward Television, pictured on Hello From Westward. This was the first Westward production, shown on its first day of broadcasting. Next to him is Westward's symbol, the Golden Hind.

The company's first chairman was Peter Cadbury, who had left the board of Tyne Tees Television in order to bid for the south-west franchise. Cadbury named the company after the golf course at Westward Ho!, in Devon, where he played. Ironically, Westward Ho! was the part of Westward's region that found reception most difficult, until the construction of the Huntshaw Cross relay transmitter in 1968. Westward's region was surrounded on three sides by the sea, and that was strongly reflected in Westward's output and its symbol - a silver model of the Golden Hind.

Westward's small size and the structure of ITV (which, at the time, deliberately made it hard for small- and medium-sized ITV companies to contribute to the network) meant it produced comparatively little output for the network. Instead, Westward concentrated on regional programming. Image File history File links B_w_ident. ...


From 1968 until the end of Westward's life, the ITA/IBA gave Westward a target of providing 6.5 hours of new regional programming a week; Westward always exceeded this target. The Independent Television Authority (ITA) was a body created by the Television Act 1954 to supervise the creation of Independent Television (ITV), the first commercial television network in the United Kingdom. ... The Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA) was the regulatory body in the United Kingdom for commercial television (ITV and Channel 4 - cable and satellite television were the responsibility of the Cable Authority) and radio broadcasts. ...


Westward had a dual policy for its local programming: it produced a wide range of programmes of particular interest to the south west's rural and agricultural communities, whilst simultaneously producing programming designed to stimulate its audience's interest in new areas.


News and Current Affairs

By 1969, Westward had more than 100 correspondents across the region informing Westward of newsworthy local events and eight film cameramen who would travel the region gathering news. 1969 (MCMLXIX) was a common year starting on Wednesday (the link is to a full 1969 calendar). ...


Westward's flagship programme was Westward Diary, which began life as a regional magazine programme that broadcast three times a week (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays) between 6:15pm and 7pm. There were three presenters, Barry Westwood, Reginald Bosanquet and Kenneth MacLeod, who rotated on a weekly basis. The regional news was contained in a separate bulletin called Westward News, which was broadcast every weekday from 6.05pm-6.15pm. Reginald Bosanquet was a newsreader on Independent Television News in the United Kingdom for several years. ...


Westward Diary was soon merged with Westward News, to become what was known at the time as a 'regional news magazine', and was broadcast every weekday between 6.00pm and 6:30pm. Kenneth MacLeod was asked to join Westward and present the new weekday programme permanently. The news would be read by the duty announcer, so MacLeod's role on the Diary was not that of a newsreader, but of a presenter holding the whole package together.


The five-day-a-week Westward Diary had two halves, separated by a commercial break. The first half concentrated on the regional news, whereas the second half included other items of interest to local viewers. A number of experts would visit to present regular features: Ted Tuckerman would present a fishing spot called "Tight Lines" , Jon Miller (the zoologist, and also presenter of Southern Television's How!) would present a spot about nature, architect David Young would examine local architecture of interest, and Topline Broadhurst would present regular gardening spots. There was a regular spot called "Help!" (for charity and voluntary groups), a slot called "Pick Of The Post" (in which viewers' letters would be read) and the popular "Picture Puzzle" (in which viewers had to try and guess the location shown in a photograph taken somewhere in the region. Zoology (Greek zoon = animal and logos = word) is the biological discipline which involves the study of animals. ... Southern Television was one of the original ITV companies, serving the south-central and south-east of England from August 30, 1958 until 12:45 AM on January 1, 1982. ...


Westward staff returned to work a few days before the end of the ITV National Strike of 1979. However, Kenneth MacLeod had to present Westward Diary in what looked to viewers like almost total darkness, as the union only permitted the house lights to be switched on in the studio. This page refers to the year 1979. ...


In the early '70s, A Date With Danton was a stand-alone weekly programme that provided a round-up of local arts and entertainment events. This later became a spot entitled "What's On", in Friday's edition of Westward Diary. The Friday edition of Sports Desk was a stand-alone programme in the early '70s, but this too had become part of the Diary towards the end of that decade. To accommodate this, the length of Friday's edition of Diary was extended to an hour.


The local weather forecast in Westward Diary (with an emphasis on information useful to fishermen and farmers) was given by a popular local personality, Graham Danton, who presented several programmes for Westward, including Holiday Times (an events listings programme aimed at people holidaymaking in the region) and Late With Danton (a consumer programme).


Westward was one of the first ITV regions to broadcast a late evening regional news bulletin (Westward Late News).


On April Fools Day, 1973, Westward broadcast a film about the village of Spiggot, which had boycotted decimalisation and were still using pre-decimal currency. Many viewers wrote to Westward in support of the villagers stance, oblivious to the date the film was broadcast. — Mark Twain April Fools Day or All Fools Day is a notable day, though not of its own right a holiday, celebrated in many countries on April 1. ... 1973 (MCMLXXIII) was a common year starting on Monday. ...

Children

An early programme for young people was Spin Along, a regional pop music programme presented by Alan 'Fluff' Freeman. Other 60s music programmes included The Westward Beat Competition (the judges included Brian Epstein and Dick Rowe) and Pop And Leslie. Alan Fluff Freeman (born July 6, 1927, Melbourne, Australia) is a well-known disc jockey and radio personality in the United Kingdom. ... Brian Epstein, The Beatles manager and a force behind the groups early success. ...


Another local music programme was Move Over Dad; in November 1963. The Beatles had to be smuggled into Derry's Cross through a tunnel to record an interview with Stuart Hutchison for this programme, due to the number of fans outside the studios. The Beatles were an English pop and rock music group from Liverpool, who continue to be held in the very highest regard for their artistic achievements, their huge commercial success, and their ground-breaking role in the history of popular music. ...


In 1969, Angela Rippon joined Westward from BBC South West, as a producer of children's and women's programmes; she also produced two series of the children's programme Young Eyes presented by David Rodgers. Angela Rippon, OBE (born October 12, 1944) is a well-known British television journalist and lesbian. ...


Another popular long-running programme featured a puppet rabbit, Gus Honeybun, who appeared with the duty announcer who read out birthday greetings to the region's children. Gus was retained by TSW when they took over the franchise. Television South West (TSW) was the ITV franchise holder for the South West England region from 1 January 1982 until 31 December 1992, broadcasting from the former Westward Television studios in Plymouth, Devon. ...


Network programming

Initially, Westward had an arrangement with ABC Weekend Television (ABC) to provide its network programming. As Channel Television took its network feed from Stockland Hill, this obliged Channel to affiliate to ABC. These 'affiliate' arrangements lasted until they were abolished in the 1964 franchise round. Westward also had an arrangement with Associated TeleVision (ATV), to play out any networked Westward programmes onto the ITV network. ABC logo, 1960s ABC Television or ABC Weekend TV was the British Independent Television (ITV) (commercial television) contractor on Saturdays and Sundays in the Midlands and North of England between 1956 and 1968. ... The current Channel TV ident Channel Television (CTV) is a British television station which has served as an Independent Television (ITV), contractor to the Channel Islands since 1962. ... The ATV colour logo, used from the start of the colour standard in 1969 until the companys demise in 1981. ...


Westward's contributions to the network were very rare at first, mainly consisting of one-off programmes and editions of the Morning Service (later renamed Morning Worship).


On January 19, 1972, there was a relaxation on the restrictions of broadcast hours that had been set by the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications. This allowed regular daytime programming on weekday afternoons, and weekday morning programming during out-of-school term time. These extra off-peak hours gave smaller ITV companies a chance to provide some networked or part-networked programmes. By the mid '70s, Westward had taken advantage of this opportunity by finding a small niche producing adult education programmes for the ITV network. These included the series Westcountry Fayre (cookery), Freeze! (freezing food) and Keep Britain Slim (slimming). January 19 is the 19th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ... 1972 (MCMLXXII) was a leap year starting on Saturday. ...


One of Westward's network productions was Walking Westward, Clive Gunnell's marathon series in which he walked around the entire coastline of the south-west.


Programme Journal

Initially, Westward published weekly programme listings in its own programme journal, Look Westward. The first edition cost 5d, and featured a special article by Westward board member Daphne Du Maurier. Many Westward personalities, such as announcer Sheila Kennedy, contributed articles to Look Westward. The term £sd (pron. ... Daphne du Maurier DBE (13 May 1907 – 19 April 1989) was one of the most successful Cornish novelists of all time. ...


However, as part of the 1968 franchise round, the ITA created Independent Television Publications (ITP), and Westward's weekly listings would be obliged to appear solely in the Westward edition of the national listings magazine TV Times, which was published by ITP. The Independent Television Authority (ITA) was a body created by the Television Act 1954 to supervise the creation of Independent Television (ITV), the first commercial television network in the United Kingdom. ... The TV Times is a television listings magazine published in the United Kingdom. ...


In 1971, ITP launced a junior version of TV Times called Look In, which featured weekly listings of Westward programmes for younger viewers (including Gus Honeybun), along with listings for the other ITV regions. The TV Times is a television listings magazine published in the United Kingdom. ...


Franchise loss

On 28 December 1980, while the ITV network was showing Drake's Venture, Westward Television's two-hour filmed drama to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Sir Francis Drake's circumnavigation of the globe (starring John Thaw), ITN broke into a commercial break to announce that ATV was to undergo major changes and Southern and Westward had not had their licences renewed by the IBA; the south-west franchise was awarded to TSW (Television South West). December 28 is the 362nd day of the year (363rd in leap years) in the Gregorian Calendar, with 3 days remaining. ... 1980 (MCMLXXX) was a leap year starting on Tuesday. ... Sir Francis Drake. ...

Following the loss of its franchise, Westward's management decided to sell up quickly, and the company (including its staff, premises and programme library) was purchased by TSW, early in 1981, for £2.38 million. TSW continued using the Westward name and galleon on screen until 31 December 1981, before it was replaced at midnight by the hills and river of TSW.

Westward Television | Ident (765 words)
In the first Westward ident, the galleon is shot end on, against a photographic background of waves in a circle in the centre of the screen.
Westward dropped the print logo from their second ident, and interestingly shot the galleon rotating into a side view in negative against an optically printed fl background.
Westward’s galleon is a classic for the same reason that ATV or Thames’s are classics - the ident succeeds in encapsulating the ethos of the company in ten seconds.
Westward Television - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1674 words)
Westward Television was the first ITV franchise holder for the South West of England from 29 April 1961 until 31 December 1981.
Westward's region was surrounded on three sides by the sea, and that was strongly reflected in Westward's output and its symbol - a silver model of the Golden Hind.
TSW continued using the Westward name and galleon on screen until 31 December 1981, before it was replaced at midnight by the hills and river of TSW.
