Storyline

Independent Television News started along in 1955 with the Independent Television (ITV) launch. It's first presenter was Christopher Chataway . It has become a mainstay and popular news programme, with it's 50th anniversary in 2005. Trevor McDonald was the first black presenter on ITN (now ITV News, as of 1999) and is widely respected, with constant awards. In 1994, the News at Ten theme was adopted for all bulletins and is still used today, albeit remixed. When News at Ten was axed in 1999, it caused a national outrage, but returned for 25 mins only in 2001. It is now called the ITV News at Ten Thirty, along with a massive relaunch that happened in February of 2004, which saw the biggest ITV companies (Carlton and Granada) merge to form ITV plc. ITV News is still going strong, with more and more reporters moving along and old names returning. Written by Nicky Lotay
