I know it really shouldn't as it's a serious story, but the first headline being the Partridge-esque 'Woman in Skip' made me chuckle.

Also, the classic local radio 'pluck three local names to show we're local' on the ident.

(I think the You Tube uploader has switched the Look North theme tune for a later version)
It was very slick for the time - we're much more used to it now, but it was very well done. I believe it was done from Leeds but my memory may be failing me.

I think he did as I can remember him reading bulletins when the Hull region became full-time.

Helen Philpot presenting from a different set there I saw?

Yes, that set was unusual, I think it was after they left the broom cupboard so after 2004?

Also, talking of sets, I remember reading that the last few weeks of the sub-opt was presented in front of a plasma screen ahead of the new show, can anyone confirm this?

Yes that set looks like a temporary decamp while the current set was being installed.

I think you're right about the last few weeks of the sub opt, a decamp for the new set to be installed probably.

It's quite astonishing to think that for nearly 14 of those years, they have used the same studio set!

I think it has aged quite well though.

Interesting to think the current set of Look North Hull has been in place since 2009.

It certainly needs a refresh! Bring back the red sofa for Peter?
