 A Safe Place to Learn - Breaking Down Barriers
Meridian is the regional ITV franchise holder covering an area of South East England stretching from Dorset to Kent.
Where broadcasting included live programmes (for example the Meridian Ageing with Attitude campaign) it was necessary to bear in mind the very different (and sometimes unpredictable) nature of these broadcasts, especially if they involved a live audience or participating members of the public.
In general, broadcasters found that it was vital to provide enough call handling capacity to handle high levels of response during and after broadcasts — calls remaining unanswered can be permanently ‘lost’ to the rest of the campaign, and such calls are bad public relations.

 From The South (part 2) | Studio One   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Meridian Broadcasting was to be a rather different animal in what was fast becoming a multi-channel television age, as it would be a “publisher broadcaster”.
Meridian TV accumulated some ITV network successes but as most of its programming was provided by independent producers it is harder to grant true credit, a regular curse for the new ‘publisher broadcasters’.
Meridian joined with Anglia, HTV and, strangely, Express Newspapers, to become United Media; United Media itself was soon broken up, the newspapers going to Richard Desmond, HTV to Carlton and Meridian and Anglia to Granada.

 A Safe Place to Learn - Recognising the Potential
Broadcasting presents prime opportunities for all institutions involved in the promotion of lifelong learning as a means of increasing the quality of lives for individuals, the opportunities open to them, and the flexibility and competitiveness of the workforce.
The task for those involved in developing lifelong learning, therefore, is to communicate these benefits to the broadcasters; for broadcasters, to be open to these possibilities and to communicate with the policy practitioners to realise them in detail.
Broadcasters will need to be clear that any proposed work will not conflict with overall commercial imperatives, and in particular that viewing figures will not be adversely affected.

 Emma: A Literary Analysis On Character Technique
Clueless, the 1995 film interpretation of Emma by Amy Heckerling, and the 1996 Meridian Broadcasting Ltd movie version of Emma, both exhibit numerous parallels to the original Jane Austen novel which was first published in 1816.
Austen is so successful in applying characterisation techniques that her story line and her influence on the reader's opinions easily transcend the passage of time and variation of deliverance to give Meridian Broadcasting Ltd's Emma and Heckerling's Clueless the same modern day appeal as its forerunner Emma.
Elton in the Meridian Broadcasting Ltd direct Emma interpretation, the character in the movie essentially behaves exactly Austen originally created his character in the book.

 Carlton buys Granada Media's HTV for $262 million and Meridian stake - Oct. 24, 2000
Carlton will pay £181 million ($262 million) for the broadcasting interests of Granada Media's HTV unit, a commercial TV station for Wales and the west of England, and will transfer its 20 percent stake in Meridian Broadcasting Ltd. to Granada Media.
That will lift Granada Media's ownership of Meridian, which broadcasts to the south east of Britain, to 99.9 percent, and bring its share of advertising revenue generated by the U.K.'s Independent Television (ITV) network to 51 percent, the company said.
Granada was obliged to sell some of its regional ITV units following its £1.75 billion takeover in July of rival United News and Media PLC's (UNWS) broadcasting interests, including the majority of Meridian, to comply with British regulations limiting audience share to 15 percent.

 HTW: Features: 40 Years of ITV in the South
It may have been a rather 'phoney' idea but the show was popular; it only ended when Southern stopped broadcasting, though Meridian revived the show for a brief time with the daughters of some of the original cast, in 1993.
The aftermath of the controversial "closed franchise auction" that took place in 1991 was probably predictable in the case of TVS - Meridian was chosen as its successor, and was different from both Southern and TVS in the sense that it used independent producers (and production companies) to produce the majority of its programmes.
Meridian have also now adopted the 'generic' ITV look that all non-Carlton England franchises have adopted since late 1999 - see the ITV page for more details.
