Tuesday 1st January 2019 heralded a refresh of ITV and UTV's presentation. Whilst ITV benefitted from the new idents of 'Project 52', UTV retained its current set - but both channels had new break bumpers and trailer graphics.
Citing restrictions to working practices during the COVID pandemic, UTV's presentation was 'temporarily' unified with that of the network's in April 2020 - all bumpers and idents were replaced with ones branded ITV. By the end of 2020, it appeared that the move was permanent. However, a year later in April 2021, UTV branded bumpers in the latest ITV style appeared on-screen leading to a mix of three styles: new bumpers, trailers for local programming in the old-style, and current ITV trailers and idents.
A mix of the styles in one flowing sequence introducing the ITV Lunchtime News on Saturday 24th April 2021.
