Info On BBC Regions Please

Post by EMJB »

As part of a project to improve handling of regionalised programmes, I need to have a full list of the BBC1 regionalised names, and how these correspond to ITV regions. For example, my BBC1 is called "BBC ONE East E" and I get "Anglia" ITV, from which I deduce that there is a "BBC ONE East W", but does that also correspond to the Anglia ITV region, and is there by any chance a "BBC ONE East N"? I would therefore be grateful if as many people as possible could do short posts of the form:

"BBC ONE East E : Anglia ITV"

if their combination has not already been posted.

TIA,

EMJB

I have the full list on my Freesat PVR but there seems to be a lack of naming consistency across the platforms as East Anglia region is called

BBC 1 East (E)

You may glean some BBC names from here While it won't tell you the ITV region name, it may help compile a list of regions that you need to map.

Further googling produced this list

The Regional variations paragraph in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ITV_(TV_channel) indicates that they are now all called one of
ITV
ITV Cymru Wales
ITV Channel Television
(although there is also a mention of ITV Wales in the text)

Geoff

Note: You will have to add _(TV_channel) manually; the forum url recogniser doesn't seem to like it)

Thanks everyone - I should have made it clearer that I appreciate the ITV region is not included in the title and it is only things like the local news that tell you which ITVregion you have. I am trying to use the BBC region to deduce the ITV region, and need confirmation of the relationship as I don't trust my current source.

With regards to Geoff's list, I have a similar, but not identical list, hence the request for as much feedback as possible. Please keep it coming!

Saw this posted elsewhere today:
"We've had a minor rename here in Granadaland this morning.
At 10:45 - "BBC ONE NWest" has become "BBC ONE N West" - note the extra space before the W."

I don't know if it is relevant but West/Westcountry become one Channel 3 region on 1st January 2015 from a legislative point of view, when the new C3 licences start.
