~ CITV 30th Birthday 2013 ~
By the time CITV's 30th birthday rolled around, things had changed considerably for it. CITV was now a channel in its own right, with the previous afternoon slot on ITV1 having been axed, and only an occasional few slots on weekends popping up in the main channel's schedule. All the studios in Birmingham were now gone, with presentation having been moved out of vision and up to Manchester.
Despite the amount of changes, a good effort was still made to mark the 30th birthday of the station. A raft of archive programming from the previous 3 decades was dug out to make up the 'Old Skool Weekend'. This was interspersed with animated throwbacks to previous presentation from CITV as well as celebrity birthday popup sequences.
