The winter 1968/spring 1969 was not one of ITV's best eras, the new contracts had started,
Granada had "lost" Yorkshire, ATV had "lost" London, there was much expense required to fund the forthcoming
colour operation. The LWT programmes schedule had all been dropped by most other ITV regions as it was
losing them viewers & displeasing the advertisers.
At this stage, ATV and Granada merely substituted the LWT programmes with feature films, proper programmes
would not be ready for transmission until 1969.
