This Day in History: 1968-03-03

TWW ceased broadcasting. The station lost its franchise in the previous ITV licensing awards and decided to close 10 weeks early. It sold its remaining airtime to HTV for £500,000. However Harlech was not ready to commence transmissions. To fill the gap, an interim service, staffed by former TWW staff, was provided until Harlech’s launch on Monday 20th May 1968.
