Enjoying your site, it really helps us who don't know too much are this subject. Now come the please help bit, said in a nice way of course.
I live in Pitsea, Basildon just a couple miles passed Basildon in Essex. TV in this part of the country has always been a problem, but its totally poor pictures. Its more 100% great........the only problem, both the ITV and BBC offer top rate local news, and pictures. South and East Essex find the site at BlueBell Hill near Maidstone in Kent give a super service picture and soundwise.........How lots in this part of Essex, from along the Thames Estuary town around Southend, Basildon, Pitsea, towards Clacton all here in Essex.

Question, the site at BlueBell Hill in Kent was first switched around around 1986, and offered a BBC and ITV London area service, which was'nt bad, But here in Essex, The Sudbury service was fair ,not the best out of the three regionals we was able to watch, other being Dover TX. Then overnight in 1983 ? The BlueBell Hill, service switched its programming from London, to South and SouthEast ITV and BBC London at first then a total blackout, its became of the BBC's South and East.........from that time onwards Essex, the River Thames
and all those towns along the thames estuary, Basildon, Southend Clacton, was even heard of the BBCs new SouthEast tv service, lovely picture still.........

The funny part about we heard a few years later, that the people that should know........did'nt know many many and still tv viewers today have to enjoy South East London and Kent news, give a good word to ITV who try to keep our area on the map or two to try to service Essex.

The footnote , to this tale, I think was around the late 1980s, a survey was carried out in North Kent asking people what regional news do you want London or South East............think you can all guess what they hopped for....................Bearing in mind that last part, I would not say it was 100% right, But heck , it would not be wrong to say it anyway.
