Your own memories of this will vary but I grew up in the South of England. The days of there only being a handful of channels seems so long gone now but I do firmly remember the days of only having four TV channels – we could never get channel 5 down our aerial and didn’t have satellite or cable either.
I have plenty of memories of Meridian, the logo being quite distinct and even to this day an unusual one for a TV station and the theme tune too was always very memorable.
As a child I remember Meridian coming on the air but I had no real knowledge of what a Meridian was or why it was relevant (or not) it was just the name of the local TV station.
As I grew older I started to notice the different TV companies logos at the end more and more and wonder what those TV stations looked like but it would be years later and the arrival of the internet before I would discover a whole new world (and personal interest).
I’ll probably revisit this subject again as the world of television really did become an increasingly strong interest of mine down the years but in the meantime I’ll just leave this logo firmly from the past and what now seems like a bizarre time when there was more than one ITV.
