Television South: Late Night Late

TVS started its own Night time service called “Late Night Late” in September 1987, gradually extending its broadcast hours until a full 24-hour service began on 20 June 1988. The strand was the first to be simulcast on another ITV station (Channel Television). Presenters included Tim Barron, Laura Penn, Graham Rogers and Mark Walker.
