ITV 1999
Revised  Mo 3-Apr-06

Some of the ITV network had a new look in November 1999. New graphics featured "dual branding" - the regional logo, plus the ITV logo. A theme based on a heart shape was also built into the idents, break bumpers and programme trailers.

ITV 2002
Revised  Fr 19-May-06

In October 2002 ITV re-branded itself once again with a set of celebrity idents. Most of the country now saw only the ITV1 brand on screen - company names, such as Anglia, had been relegated to appearing only before regional programmes. In 2003, with Scottish and Grampian now on board, the entire network had adopted the new look to some extent.

ITV 2003
Revised  Th 6-Dec-07

In September 2003 ITV "refreshed" its on-air look and began showing an updated batch of celebrity idents. Three months later Carlton introduced new regional idents. Then in February 2004, when Granada and Carlton merged to form ITV plc, there was a unified look for national and regional news bulletins, killing off the last mention of HTV, and a common design was introduced for regional production captions.
