Carlton Television ... every Monday to 5.15pm every Friday (and for legal formalities, remains so). The company is now part of ITV plc and managed with London Weekend Television as a single entity, ITV London. Major programmes include London Tonight, The London Programme and London Soccer Night. Carlton Television's parent company Carlton Communications also gained the Central England and Westcountry franchises, after successfully taking over Central Independent Television in 1994 and Westcountry Television in 1996. The regional identities of the two regions continued as normal until 1999, when Carlton controversially rebranded both of them under its own name. Carlton also gained the Wales and West of England franchise holder, HTV from Granada Television, in 2001, though most of the production facilities were retained by Granada. Like all ITV plc-owned regions, Carlton is now known on air as ITV1, and ITV1 London verbally in accordance with regional programming.

But this does not excuse the fact that the advert breaks come at the most irritating moments during a race or a TV program. If I had my way the adverts would be after the TV programs not during of cause this would mean longer ad breaks but I'm sure people would prefer it. LWT do produce some great programs and TV dramas and often put some ... Read the complete review

After Carlton Communications won the weekday bid for programming on ITV (and LWT retaining it's weekend spot) in the early 90's from Thames Television, the choice of programmes were either the same, or stale. Not a very good start for a new company. But atleast they had a fresh new image, a friendly TV image, and from that they begun on working on preserving old favourites (and non-favourites), and introducing programmes that cater for quite a number of tastes. There are times when Carlton/LWT (and Channel 4) give the BBC channels a run for their money! I'm not a supporter of Carlton, like a football team supporter, but their television license has ...

It is not free, the adverts tend to take over the channel and the chats before matches are exceedingly long.
