On This Day...
16th October
Channels
1987
In the early hours of the morning, a major storm hit the south of England. BBC Television Centre lost its main power supply. Via a back-up generator NC1 (Network Control for BBC One) kept BBC One on air, with an impromptu edition of BBC Breakfast Time, presented by Nicholas Witchell from the BBC One continuity studio (NC1 Con), also known as The Broom Cupboard by viewers of CBBC. The programme later switched to a temporary studio. TV-am was initially broadcast from a small studio at Thames TV before power was restored at its main studios in Camden. Although BBC Two was not due on air until 9am, with Pages from Ceefax, followed by Daytime on Two at 9.30pm, an apology caption is believed to have been in place (accompanied by music) from c. 8am. It read: "BBC 2 - We apologise for the lack of programmes. This is due to a major power failure in the south east. Further news on BBC1." LINK: Video Video Video.
1991
Following changes to the system of ITV licence allocation laid out in The Broadcasting Act 1990, the Independent Television Commission today announced the results of the franchise round, for licences beginning 1st January 1993. Thames – the biggest programme supplier to the ITV network – was outbid by broadcasting and media services company, Carlton Television. TV-am was outbid by £20m by Sunrise TV. TVS failed to renew its licence because it bid too much – Meridian Broadcasting won that franchise. TSW lost out to Westcountry TV, despite bidding more.
