London Tonight: 2004-2006

Most ITV Regions unveiled a new generic look to their news programmes on Monday 2 February 2004 to co-incide with the launch of ITV plc. Production for all ITV London News programming remained at The London Studios (formerly known as the LWT South Bank Centre) until 29 February 2004. Production is now conducted by the national news provider ITN at their headquarters in Central London, making the region unique as it holds the only franchise operation not to produce its own in-house news programmes.
