*Sniff..* I bet ATV London was better than Carlton.

A blank screen was better than Carlton.

Trevor Lucas was on BBC announcing duty at the time of JFK’s assassination, as can be discovered from a YouTube clip with a ‘special announcement’ slide and clock with infeasibly large second hand (as they all used to have back in the day).

ATV was better than carlton. It was pretty slick, and i remember london weekend seeming shouty and lacking in identification when it started. No logo, just a slide saying ‘this is london weekend television’.
