Full listings for CITV

CITV (short for Children's ITV or Children's Independent Television) is the brand name used for the majority of children's television output on ITV's television stations, including the ITV Network, breakfast broadcaster GMTV and the ITV plc-owned CITV Channel as well as non ITV plc owned regions. The flagship CITV strand was previously broadcast on weekday on ITV (normally referred to as ITV1 in England and Wales, STV in central and northern Scotland, and UTV in Northern Ireland) between 15:30 and 17:00, Saturday mornings between 06:00 and 11:30, and Sunday mornings between 07:25 and 10.00. The afternoon weekday slot was recently stopped altogether, and therefore CITV only runs on weekend mornings on ITV (see below). CITV also has its own channel, which was launched by ITV plc on 11 March 2006.

Children's ITV was already recorded from 1983 - 1987. From 1987 Children's ITV was broadcast live for the very first time. From February 1993 CITV went out of vision and had Steven Ryde doing most of the voice overs and links. 1998 brought back a studio and presenters but with Steven Ryde still producing CITV. At the start of the summer holidays in 2004, Andy Jaye (the previous in-vision presenter) said goodbye for the last time from the Birmingham studios as of CITV visiting various new shows. From September that year to today CITV is yet again out of vision with no links from presenters in a studio with CITV moving to Granada Television's studios in Manchester from late 2005 onwards. Tim Dann (the current voice over for CITV) records links for the weekly schedule.
