I'd like to see it return, though I can't help but feel it will struggle as before with ratings.

Would love to see Layla Daybalge (sp!) back on the screen.

If sky news winds down its operations in a few years time, with this news every 15 mins crap, I think we will see it return.

I believe that there would be more opinion based programming in the evening, and weekends.

I do think its downfall though was it's schedule, despite being my favourite channel i just could not get my head round it with some presenters dissappearing and then coming back 2hrs later just to do one hour. It just didn't make sense. Look at sky news and they have very clearly defined slots 9-12 12-2 2-5 etc, this is what ITV need to have.

Does anybody know of any sites with toths from the channel?

BSkyB have a significant share in ITV (if I'm not mistaken), so I'd doubt they'd allow ITV to bring the channel back.

Here's my 'detailed' plans;

Please feel free to rip them to shreds etc.

Lets start with the basics, presentation.

Compared to sky's current look the ITVNC pres. was quite good, it just lacked some consistency here and there.

The newswall grpahic was rubbish really, you need to have a feel of the newsroom around you, which is why the current one is so good IMO.

The studio, obviously they are not going to be able to compete with sky or bbc in terms of studio space, and after what happened the first time round you could hardly expect a huge investment in studios etc and new equipment so they old stuff would do fine.

All I would do is have a presentation point built in the newsroom, like sky's so you can present programming form there when necessary. This will also help out later on, as you will see.

Programming.

06.00 - Connect with Andrew Harvey and Lucy Alexnder.



Breakfast for commuters, fast and informative live from the newsroom.



- Only two 'locked-on' cameras in the newsroom means low production values but high impact.

10.00 - Live with Alastair Stewart



Presented from the studio with Al' based at newswall and three reporters around the desk monitoring their appointed story, providing updates every 20 minutes. Al' then interviews guests etc.

12.30 - The Lunchtime News with Katie Durham.



As is now.

13.00 - The Afternoon Edition with Garient Vincent and Nina Hossien



- Only two 'locked-on' cameras in the newsroom means low production values but high impact.



Three assigned reporters give updates on their stories every 20 minutes.

17.00 - 360 with James Mates.



Don't know if he is a world affairs bloke but he looks the part.



Fast paced news prog. up to 70 stories in an hour, resources provided in part by NBC and international affiliates.

18.30 - Evening News with Mark Austin and Mary Nightingale.

19.00 - Penny Smith Live.



She deserves better than GMTV so she gets her own two hour block.



Looking at some of the lighter stories of the day with regular updates on the big stories from in studio reporters Penny mixes news, views (from audience e-mails) and humour in a fun and exciting way.

21.00 - 90 minutes with Kirsty Young.



Hard hitting and insightful viewing. A panel of three experts give up 90 minutes to discuss the days news, responding to audience views and the latest breaking stories.

10.30 - The ITV Evening News.

11.00 - 06.00 - The ITV Report with Rachel McTavish.



Presented from the studio, includes replays of interviews with colleagues from throughout the day.

Presentation

With this schedule I tried to break the day up so you have one shift from the studio, one from the newsroom during the day and then in the evening just simply from the studio, because the advantege of a green screen is that it is quite versatile so each prime-time show can have a different backdrop.

Reporter's In-Studio

I'm desperately trying to keep this brief, but can I just talk about reporters in studio. This would be unique, and so, the hope is that if any breaking stories come through the response can be quick and analysis can be given really effectively giving the opinion of a much sounder news operation.

And now the media student comes into play, If the same three reporters are regularly used then people will feel a greater sense of respect for the reporters because they know them (with the large amount of on air exposure they have), and so will feel more enclined to watch because feel that they can trust ITV News. Remember we're trying to emulate the kind of relationship that Sky viewers have with Adam Boulton, Tim Marshall and Martin Brunt etc.

It would take less production effort in the sense that edit suites and other facilities could be kept for main network bulletins because the reporter can be left to do his/her own research.

Prime-Time: Production

Looking back at the evening schedule there could be a lot of production effort needed to put the prog. on the air. Not so IMO, each presenter would have editorial control over their program and would work with an overall Prime-Time EP, responsible for 17.00-10.30 to help provide guidance and run errands or requests where necessary.





If anybody wants clarification then just ask.

Lone, I know as well as you do that in reality this just ain't happening. But I am entitled to dream, and we all know that if there was the will power ITN and ITV are both capable of putting this together, but for ITV it just isn't profitable.

BUT...

that could change if news channels are allowed more opinion etc, then this could be seen as a possibility.





EDIT: Ok, there's alot of new talent, but the hope is that by drawing Penny and Kirsty in then you will draw others in to have a look to a certain extent. If if that doesn't work to any great extent the money paid out to get them there would be paid back in the credibility the channel would receive.

As far as I can tell it's a possibility, but nothing's been decided yet.
