HTV / Carlton Continuity
2001
Here it is. The much talked about 8pm junction on HTV Wales from Monday 2nd July 2001. Is it Carlton or is it HTV?
 
With the acquisition of HTV by Carlton, new idents were inevitable.


HTV Wales (last junction)
27.10.2002
Sunday 27th October saw the end of HTV Wales as we knew it. ITV 1 Wales would replace it on Monday 28th October.
 
How appropriate that the last announcement was made by none other than Dilwyn Young Jones, HTV Wales's longest serving continuity announcer. Check out the red background and no ITV1!
