I have always been of the opinion that the transmitters and their sites were badly thought out for the Yorkshire region.
For instance;
The Bilsdale transmitter should carry programmes for North Yorkshire, wth the northern part of it's coverage for Durham being mopped up by increased power from Pontop Pike.
The Belmont transmitter was never needed. East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire could have been catered for with a transmitter at High Hunsley (Where there is an existing FM radio transmitter site).
South Lincolnshire and North Norfolk could have been covered from the Waltham transmitter, if it wasn't so under powered and relatively low in elevation.
I am sure there would have been problems with channel allocation, but not insurmountable ones.
In regards to the local news coverage, at least the BBC try to give some semblance of a regional flavour - ITV have given up!

Brian,
I presume this means that the ITV regions can be accessed without going through the "Other Cannels" palaver.

I wholeheartedly agree with fellow contributors. The only good thing about Movies4Men and it's ilk, is that I appreciate Film4 that much better. They strive to show films in widescreen, without the abomination of a logo in the corner of the screen, and keep adverts to a minimum (Not every 8 minutes or so, as now seems to be the norm!)

Yep, I've just had an afterthought as well. Film4 showed High Noon a few weeks ago, in 4:3. You can't win!
