Regional Variations

Viewers in Scotland were treated to the network's output with David Allan's continuity, Northern Ireland followed the scripts but were announced locally, whilst viewers in Wales had the pleasure of Celebrity Antiques Road Trip, Great British Menu, Mastermind, Gardeners' World and Third Star. They did, however, see the film One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.
