The most northerly, and most wide ITV region is Grampian covering from Dundee up to the Shetland Isles. A difficult region to cover, both from presentation and transmission viewpoints. Launching on 30th September 1961, Grampian Television grew itself immediate financial problems. However through an increase in local programming, Grampian gained itself a local following. In local programming, Grampian reigned supreme throughout the 70's & 80's. Little much more has been heard about the company since outside their broadcasting range, until the merger with Scottish Television's parent in the mid 90's. Nowadays Grampian's programming just looks and feels like its southern partner, and regionalism is now on a national scale.
