50 YEARS OF ITV CALENDAR, 30 YEARS WITH PRIMETIME

Filming Richard Madeley with Duncan Wood for Calendar’s 50th birthday celebrations

It’s been 50 years since Calendar News first joined ITV broadcasters bringing news coverage to Yorkshire and north Lincolnshire. In a week building up to Friday’s special 50th anniversary show, Calendar have been raiding their archives and showcasing some of their best stories. In addition they’ve been featuring interviews with many famous faces who’ve contributed to Calendar’s success – and Primetime’s Simon has filmed many of them with Duncan Wood including Sir David Jason, Richard Madeley, Jimmy Tarbuck and Michael Parkinson.

We can’t believe we’ve been working with Calendar News for almost 30 years – they’ve flow by!  We’d like to take this opportunity to express just how much we’ve enjoyed working with the brilliant ITV teams across the region, who provide first class news and programme content for these two vast counties. Primetime loves to serve Lincolnshire and Yorkshire with news and other video content and we look forward to many more years.
