Yorkshire Television is the ITV contractor for Yorkshire, England, and the surrounding areas. It was formed from a 'shotgun marriage' between two applicant groups in the 1967 franchise round, Telefusion Yorkshire Ltd and Yorkshire Independent Television, the former having large financial backing (supported by the Blackpool-based Telefusion television rental chain) and the latter having the better plans (but fewer resources). It went on air on 29 July 1968 from purpose-built colour studios in Leeds, the first of their kind in Europe. It also has a smaller studio in Sheffield. Before the studios in Leeds were completed early shows were produced at the ABC studios at Didsbury, Manchester while a former trouser-press factory in Leeds was used as an administration centre.

History

Until 2002, Yorkshire Television was often known on air as YTV and is still informally known as such in the Yorkshire region. Its logo, from 1968 until 2004, was a chevron, and the identification theme (heard before all its programmes throughout the ITV network until the end of 1987 and used within the Yorkshire Television region as late as 2002) was based on the traditional Yorkshire song 'On Ilkla Moor Baht'at'. YTV's first startup tune was the striking "Yorkshire Television March", written by Derek New and arranged by Ron Goodwin; this was changed in 1982 for the very similar "Yorkshire Theme" written by Chris Gunning. The station nearly came to grief a few months after going on-air, when its transmitter at Emley Moor collapsed under a heavy build-up of ice, leaving the major part of the region uncovered by television broadcasts. However, a temporary mast was quickly erected and television to the West Riding of Yorkshire resumed.

With the introduction of UHF broadcasting, YTV had failed to gain the Bilsdale transmitter in North Yorkshire, which was allocated instead to Tyne Tees Television due to the transmitter's penetration into Teesside and County Durham. This seriously reduced YTV's monopoly commercial broadcast area. Partially to address this issue, in 1974 the Independent Broadcasting Authority reallocated the Belmont Transmitter, then served by Anglia Television, to YTV. Although the area served by Belmont was largely rural, it did cover the more industrial centres of Hull, Grimsby, Scunthorpe and Lincoln and it was felt the region would be better served from Leeds rather than from Norwich.

Major Yorkshire Television programmes include the soap opera Emmerdale (originally Emmerdale Farm) and drama Heartbeat, as well as the quiz shows 3-2-1 and Winner Takes All for ITV and Countdown for Channel 4. Local programmes include the news service Calendar. From 1974 to 1978 Yorkshire produced one of ITV's few critically-acclaimed sitcoms, Rising Damp, starring Leonard Rossiter. Its continuity announcers through the 1970s and 1980s included Redvers Kyle, John Crosse and Graham Roberts.

YTV has often led the way in British commercial broadcasting: As well as building the first purpose-built colour studios on Europe it was the first to offer breakfast television. In 1978 the station took part in a six-week trial offering viewers an hour-long show comprising of local and national news and events called Good Morning Calendar (Calendar being the name of the local regional news programme). The show ran from 8.30 am to the then traditional start-up time of 9.25 am. Breakfast television (UK) or morning show (U.S.) is a type of news and entertainment television program, broadcast live in the morning (typically between 6:00am and 9:00am). ...


In 1986 the station was the first to offer 24-hour transmission (when both the BBC and ITV companies closed down at around 12.30 to 1 am). This was achieved by piping non-stop coverage of the satellite station Music Box - both YTV and Music Box were partly-owned by the same company. A musical box (or music box) is a 19th century automatic musical instrument that produces sounds by the use of a set of pins placed on a revolving cylinder so as to strike the tuned teeth of a steel comb. ...


In the mid 1980s Yorkshire broke from the network by refusing to screen the BAFTA Awards, claiming them to be slaps on the backs of the BBC. The movie The Sting was a replacement in 1986. As the rest of the network over-ran in the live BAFTA screening, Yorkshire had to cobble together minor programmes until other regions were able to screen the late-running ITN News. YTV, alone amongst ITV regions, also opted out of screening the 1982 FA Cup Final replay, arguing that a game between two London sides would be of limited interested to viewers in its region, and that in any case those who wanted to watch it could do so on BBC1. A John Wayne film was shown instead.

From its inception YTV had a turbulent relationship with the broadcasting unions (a common theme within ITV). Viewers tuning in to watch one edition of News at Ten in 1970 found themselves looking at a hand-written card which read 'Yorkshire TV have threatened to sack us so we are going on strike. Goodnight'. Sir Trevor McDonald presenting the original final broadcast of News at Ten, from 5 March 1999. ...


YTV was forced off the air by more industrial action over the whole of Christmas 1978. This partially coincided with a two-day national shutdown of both BBC channels by strikes in December of that year, meaning that for those two days the people of Yorkshire had no television at all. Many of ITV's Christmas programmes were eventually shown in the Yorkshire region in early 1979, after the dispute had ended. 1978 (MCMLXXVIII) was a common year starting on Sunday. ... The British Broadcasting Corporation, usually known as the BBC, is the largest broadcasting corporation in the world in terms of audience numbers, employing 26,000 staff in the United Kingdom alone and with a budget of more than GB£4 billion (US$7. ... For the song by the Smashing Pumpkins, see 1979 (song). ...


In the ITV strike of 1979 the station, like the rest of the network, was off the air for over two months. However the dispute was more intense at YTV as the company's management were seen as instrumental in fighting the unions, and because the company covered an "Old Labour" heartland where the miners' strike would later be fought. In the 1980 franchise round several YTV staff submitted their own application for the Yorkshire franchise under the name of 'Television Yorkshire'. The miners strike of 1984-5 was a major piece of industrial action affecting the British coal industry. ... Look up Yorkshire in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...


Although Yorkshire Television claims to serve the whole of Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire, it has long been contended by many of the people of Sheffield that Yorkshire Television shows an unacceptable bias towards West Yorkshire in general and Leeds in particular[1]. This alleged bias was never better illustrated than when Sheffield Wednesday won an unlikely League Cup Final in 1991 against Manchester United. Extended highlights of the game and post-match celebrations were available and individual ITV stations were left to decide whether to show them; London Weekend Television showed the additional half-hour, but Yorkshire Television opted to stay with their scheduled programme, War of the Monster Trucks - a decision which they have never subsequently been able to live down[1]. Yorkshire Television opened a Calendar News studio in Sheffield prior to the War of the Monster Trucks incident[2], possibly to counter accusations of bias. The studio is clearly a very small setup however, which again has led to a perception among locals that YTV treats Sheffield as an afterthought..

Calendar is the local news programme for Yorkshire Television. ...


A similar charge of bias has been levied by viewers served by the Belmont Transmitter which covers Lincolnshire and northern Norfolk. Until January 1, 1974 this area received coverage from Anglia Television but was replaced by Yorkshire. It is often contended that the name of the company reflects its focus, but others say this is an unfair accusation given that during the 1970s and 1980s the company invested heavily in operations in Lincoln and Grimsby and created a regional opt-out for the area on its main news programme Calendar. This has been suceeded by a news show dedicated to the region served by the Belmont transmitter. However it is still broadcast from the studios in Leeds unlike its BBC rival which is produced at studios in Hull. The Belmont transmitting station is a broadcasting and telecommunications facility, situated close to the village of Donington on Bain, near Market Rasen and Louth in Lincolnshire, England (grid reference TF217837). ...

Mergers and branding

Tyne Tees

In 1974, Yorkshire Television was effectively merged with its neighbour Tyne Tees Television, when the two were brought under the control of Trident Television Limited, a company formed to deal with the problem of effective ownership of the Bilsdale transmitter. It is often contended that the other point of the trident was intended to be Anglia Television but that in the event Anglia was prevented from joining by the Independent Broadcasting Authority. However it appears that the third 'point' was to be Trident's non-television interests and that Anglia were never considered as partners in the enterprise.

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. ...


The two stations remained separately run and were required to demerge in 1981 as a condition of the re-award of their ITV contracts. However, following rule changes in 1992, the two stations resumed their alliance under the name Yorkshire-Tyne Tees Television plc. This time around the two stations were integrated to a far greater extent -- following the takeover hundreds of jobs were axed at the two broadcasters, including 185 at Tyne Tees, over half its workforce. Yorkshire-Tyne Tees were repeatedly warned over worsening standards at the Newcastle-based station, at one point the ITC threatened to revoke the Tyne Tees licence if the situation did not improve. Various programmes which had previously been shown at a regional pace were suddenly jolted forward to the furthest ahead point among Yorkshire and Tyne Tees. Yorkshire had to lose over 200 episodes of The Young Doctors to reach the Tyne Tees stage of the serial. Similarly Tyne Tees had to lose over 100 episodes of Blockbusters and 2 episodes of Prisoner. Other programmes were also affected. 1992 (MCMXCII) was a leap year starting on Wednesday. ...

The Young Doctors was an Australian, early evening soap opera. ... A game in progress on the British Bob Holness-hosted version of Blockbusters. ...


In 1996, Yorkshire Tyne Tees Television made the controversial move of dual branding its stations as "Channel 3". Yorkshire Television had a scaled back version of this branding, and became known as Channel 3 Yorkshire, but its neighbour Tyne Tees Television was forced to use Channel 3 North East with Tyne Tees Television existing only in small letters underneath. To make matters worse, the announcers often informed viewers they were watching 'Tyne Tees Television, broadcasting on Channel 3 in the North East'. 1996 (MCMXCVI) was a leap year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year for the Eradication of Poverty. ...


Granada

After Granada removed the Channel 3 branding, Yorkshire reverted back to its original theme.
After Granada removed the Channel 3 branding, Yorkshire reverted back to its original theme.

In 1997 Yorkshire Tyne Tees Television plc was acquired by Granada Group plc (now ITV plc). Granada's first move was to scrap the hated-in-some-quarters Channel 3 branding, starting from 9 March 1998. However, dual branding with the "ITV" name was introduced a year later.

In 1998, transmission control and presentation for all of Granada's stations in the North of England moved to Yorkshire, with the creation of the Northern Transmission Centre. This highly automated server based system was the source to Border, Tyne Tees and Granada as well as the Yorkshire regional output. The continuity department closed down in 2002 after a unified presentation department for ITV1 in England was set up by LNN in London. London News Network (or LNN) was a television news organization in London. ...


On 28 October 2002, Yorkshire Television was rebranded as ITV1 Yorkshire. The "Yorkshire" rarely appears, even before regional programmes; the rest of the time, only the name "ITV1" is shown. The famous chevron continued to appear after programmes made by Yorkshire Television, until 31 October 2004. However, from 1 November 2004, the Granada logo appears at the end of Yorkshire programmes, accompanied by the words 'A Granada Yorkshire Production'. Further, in January 2006, this was replaced with an anonymous 'ITV Productions' credit. The only reference to Yorkshire Television is at the very end of the credits as in Emmerdale where the ITV website link changes to Copyright Yorkshire Television Limited (year).
