Lookaround 1990 – 1993

New graphics for Lookaround in 1990, but the music’s still there. Quite what a triangle has to do with the Border region is another question.

Lookaround 1993 – 2001

A complete new look for Lookaround by 1993. These titles were used for the next 8 years. Either Border really liked them or were trying for the record for longevity of titles.

Lookaround 2009 – 2013

In January 2009 OFCOM gave ITV plc permission to merge the ITV Border and ITV Tyne Tees regions. On Wednesday 25th February 2009 the shorter bulletins became pan-regional and called ‘Tyne Tees & Border News’. The ‘Lookaround’ and ‘North East Tonight’ titles were retained for the main 6pm programme and late bulletin during the week.

ITV News Lookaround 2013 – Present

On January 14, 2013, ‘Lookaround’ updated its graphics to align with ITV’s new corporate branding, while the studio layout remained the same.

Previously, in November 2012, Culture Secretary Maria Miller tasked Ofcom with reviewing proposals for ITV’s Border region in response to viewer dissatisfaction. The considerations were twofold: one option was to reinstate a comprehensive news service specifically for the Border region, which would include restoring the half-hour ‘Lookaround’ editions and short news updates, along with the introduction of a weekly current affairs programme tailored to the region. The alternative proposal was to require ITV Border to offer 90 minutes of non-news programming weekly, potentially featuring content from STV.

These options divided political entities, with no clear consensus on the preferred approach. The debate intensified after ITV failed to broadcast the first televised Scottish independence debate, which was available in Northern and Central Scotland via STV’s ‘Scotland Tonight’.

Ultimately, Ofcom decided to implement both proposals. As a result, on September 16, 2013, ‘Lookaround’ was reinstated as a full news service. However, broadcasts continued from the Gateshead studio, despite the changes.

On Sunday 5th July 2015, the studio was redesigned to match the national news.
