More Central

On 25 April 1987, Central began extending its programming hours to 3am on weeknights and 4am at weekends, airing its own schedule of films, series and hourly Central News bulletins under the banner of More Central. The station’s Jobfinder service (launched a year beforehand) was expanded from a single hour after closedown to fill the remainder of the night until TV-am took over at 6am.

On 13 February 1988, Central joined the short-lived joint night time schedule along with Granada and Scottish Television when the companies began full 24-hour transmission, but was abandoned within a few months. During this time, all three stations provided local presentation.

Central continued to air its own overnight service 7 days a week until June 1994, when Central joined London service during the week, but continued to provide its own weekend service. From February 1995 the london service was taken 7 days a week but opted out for regional programming until circa 2003.
