The Evening Star celebrates former Anglia Television shows in 2005 in the face of expected job losses at the station.
The newspaper profiles some of Anglia's finest work since its launch as a regional broadcaster in 1959 amid news of likely job losses.
An announcement from Ofcom in February 2005 gave ITV permission to reduce its regional broadcasting hours by half, down to just 1.5 hours per week.
The effects have been felt swiftly, with 47 job losses anticipated at the regional headquarters in Norwich. This is despite research which shows that Anglia provided £26 million to the local economy in 2002.
The profiled shows from Anglia's treasured history include Survivor, which debuted over 50 years ago in 1961. Nicholas Parsons' self-styled 'quiz of the week', Sale of the Century was also an Anglia production for 13 years.
Knightmare is the most loosely dated programme, identified as running from 1989 to the mid-90s. But it is boldly celebrated as 'a brilliant children's show'.
