Meridian: Nighttime/The Edge

in January 1995, Meridian, Channel and Anglia dropped their “Nighttime” services instead opting for their own 7 day service broadcasting from Southampton. The presentation was rebranded as “The Edge” in September 1996, which used no continuity announcements or additional presentation being broadcast to Meridian, Channel and Anglia.

From January 1996 the feed was was also simulcast to HTV and Westcountry regions with both opting instead to brand the service locally. The service largely carried the same programmes provided by LNN with some regional opt-outs for programmes such as Meridian’s World of Sailing and Freescreen.
