Yorkshire TV Continuity Junctions
Two full continuity clips here - both clips tell us what is currently on Channel 4 as well as using a holding slide to introduce the next programme. The left clip also features a programme trail for "The Bounder."
Yorkshire TV Clock

Continuity - World Of Sport / Quincy
In the first half of the 1980s YTV introduced its programmes with a holding caption rather than with an ident, as shown in these two continuity clips.
Continuity - Battlestar Galactica / Happy Days
The left clip includes the final moments of the promo informing viewers of the area's commercial radio stations. The promo was also often played as part of the closedown sequence.

Saturday on Yorkshire Promo
From the same morning as the previous clip, a trailer and more continuity.
As part of its closedown sequence, Yorkshire Television played a promotion for the region's commercial radio stations. Incidentally, YTV was one of the few regions which did not play the national anthem at closedown, preferring to fade to black after the closedown announcement over the clock.
