Yorkshire News

Calendar - 1970s

Calendar (with no word after it) is Yorkshire's flagship evening news programme, a name that has survived takeovers and even corporate rebrands under ITV plc ownership. From the 70s, a quick set of titles involving flipping through a calendar!

Calendar News (Promo) - 1991

A promo looking ahead to the evening Calendar show, which on the Friday night here focuses heavily on the upcoming League Cup Final between Manchester United and Sheffield Wednesday due at the weekend. Sheffield famously went on to win the match, although Yorkshire's coverage became quite controversial for the region as they cut away from the celebrations to show War of the Monster Trucks instead.

Calendar (Opening) - 2004

Less than a year after the fresh Calendar look had hit the air, it was dropped in favour of the generic ITV plc news look in February 2004, also finally spelling the end for the long-lived Calendar music. As with the other regions, the new set that had been brought in with the 2003 relaunch lived on for a while longer, albeit now relit in yellow and blue to match the nationwide graphics.

Calendar East - 2004

Initially after the introduction of the generic news look, subregional news continued as before, just with the updated branding and colours applied. Although all subregions would be phased out too only a few years later. Here the main Calendar studio hands over to Nicola Crompton in the Calendar East booth.
