Crimestoppers

From 1988 onwards, "Crimestoppers" appeals were broadcast in four ITV regions: HTV, Yorkshire, Tyne Tees and London. They were usually narrated by an employee of the local ITV station – in this case, Shaw Taylor, famous from his "Police Five" appeal series. Appeals were usually two minutes long and featured urgent synthesized music, but by the 1990s this was changed in order to avoid scaring young viewers during daytime screenings. Crimestoppers was founded in Norfolk in 1983 and launched as a national charitable organisation in 1988.
