    The logo and music at the .37 mark are familiar but nothing springs to mind for me in terms of TV shows. It does make me think "daytime" though.​

    Same story there. Except this doesn't even seem familiar. ​

    Nothing for this one either. I have to give it points for the abundance of bombast. ​

    This is very familiar. I think I saw this one a lot, but again I have no specific TV show association. I'll probably kick myself when I think of it.​

    The one at 9 seconds makes me think weekday evenings at about 7pm. Peter Bowles sitcoms and Emmerdale Farm at my gran's house.​

    HTV was my local region for many years, so I've probably seen this more than most. No specific big TV series association though other than perhaps local news variants. And possibly Sons And Daughters. ​

    Again, nothing specific. Although that Carlton logo makes me think of the Carry On Camping DVD.​

    Yes, LWT brings back great memories of Dempsey and Makepeace.

    Central - what else but Jim Bowen and Bullseye?

    Scottish TV - Take The High Road

    Granada - Coronation Street

    Yorkshire - Emmerdale

    Carlton - the Crossroads revival

    Thames - watching reruns of old sitcoms with my granny

    UTV - UTV was our ITV region. While most of their homegrown productions were news or lifestyle programmes, I do associate lots with their idents. UTV Live, Julian the onscreen continuity legend, security alerts being announced in ad breaks during the Troubles, very basic ads for local businesses including "it's a big shopping centre in Ballymena hey", that haunting " Cats In The Cradle" ad encouraging people to report suspected paramilitary activity in the 90's.

    Central and Southern I'd now associate with Crossroads and Together but that's only from watching them on YouTube rather than when they originally aired.
