'This is Thames Television ... from London'
For 25 glorious years words like this announced Thames Television - the clarion call of Independent Television in London during the weekdays.
As well as producing some of ITV's most popular and highest quality programmes, Thames Television had an extremely strong local identity in the London area.
After it lost its franchise to broadcast, Thames Television was consigned to the role of an independent producer and remains as one to this day, under the name of Talkback Thames TV, with its main programme libraries held by Fremantle.
