Yorkshire TV Broadcasting

Yorkshire TV studios were opened in 1968 at  Kirkstall Road Leeds broadcasting in black & white. By the end of 1969 ITV programmes started to be broadcast in colour. Yorkshire Television Limited ceased to trade on 1 January 2007 when it was taken over by ITV. It is currently named ITV Yorkshire.

Emley Moor is our transmitting station and broadcasting mast at Emley mid-way between between Huddersfield and Wakefield. The original very high tower collapsed in March 1969 due to high wind and a build-up of ice but was rebuilt as a concrete structure opened in 1971. In addition to ITV Yorkshire other stations including BBC Yorkshire and BBC 2 are transmitted from Emley.

Bilsdale transmitting station is a broadcasting and telecommunications facility, located at Bilsdale West Moor above Bilsdale, close to Helmsley, North Yorkshire. It also broadcasts to Tyne Tees
