Granada News


Granada Tonight - 2001

Granada Tonight was Granada's main evening news programme, until it was replaced in October 2001. I tend to think theses titles have a distinct American feel to them.

In October 2001, Granada decided to rebrand their news. The flagship programme reverted to a name which had been used many years earlier; Granada Reports, and with it came this new title sequence.

Granada Reports - 2003

Late Summer 2003 saw another new look for Granada's News Output, whilst still keeping the same basic theme. Here we have the new Granada Reports sequence, complete with titles, headlines, and a dodgy switch out of widescreen at the beginning. This was to be Granada's last local look, with the corporate ITV plc rebrand coming along the following year.

Granada Reports End - 2003

The new end titles for Grananda Reports.

Granada Reports - 2004

As with all the new ITV plc regions, Granada adopted the new look, as well as making a few minor changes to the studio in 2004. Here are the opening titles from the first programme, courtesy of Ashley B. What better way to kick off a new look than with a technical fault; first we have 10 seconds of the LNN transmission testcard.

Granada Reports End - 2004

The Ending to the ITV plc-icised Granada Reports.

Granada New Look Report - 2004

A long clip here containing the report from Granada about the ITV plc merger, and a bit of background on the new look news. It features some brief snippets of the other regions, as well as explaining what the merger actually means to viewers, at least in PR terms.

ITV Granada Reports - 2006

In a good display of the same co-ordination that was seen in the last relaunch of the news (which coincided with the formation of ITV plc), the sets for all the regional ITV Newsrooms across the country were tweaked once more (mostly lighting changes to make it more teal), as well as some lovely new titles being introduced, all for the network rebrand in January 2006. They still feature local imagery as before, however now an additional piece of the instrumental music is heard. This clip stems from Granada's news, and note the appearance of 'ITV' in all the region's titles now.

ITV Granada News - 1/12/2009

A little later than the main news as part of the staggered rebrand from Teal to Yellow in the regions. On December 1st the new look arrived in the North West, just in time for the last day of analogue broadcasting in the region. The first appearances were once again during GMTV, with the afternoon bulletin showing the fairly familiar by now set of yellow titles.
