Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Fremont Point transmitter area
I know the Fremont Point transmitter was built in 1962 to bring the ITV Channel Television franchise to the Channel Islands, but can you tell me when did the Channel Islands first receive BBC Television? Did the Channel Islands have to wait until Channel Television was launching to receive BBC Television, later BBC One and Two or was there a separate transmitter built in the 1950s to bring BBC Television and Radio to the islands? I have never had this questioned answered fully as I was always pointed to Fremont Point transmistter, but since that was only opened in 1962 it seems a long wait for the islands to receive BBC Television, way after the rest of the UK. For example I am from Northern Ireland and the Divis transmitter in Belfast came on the air in 1955, four years before the launch of Ulster Television, the Northern Ireland ITV franchise. I look forward to your reply. Thank You.
