London Weekend Television (LWT) was the ITV network franchise holder for Greater London and the Home Counties at weekends, broadcasting from Fridays at 5.15 pm (7:00 pm until 1982) to Monday mornings at 6:00 am. From 1968 until 1992, LWT's weekday counterpart was Thames Television, and from 1993 to 2002, was Carlton.
In 2002, LWT merged together with Carlton Television and made ITV London without affecting their respective licence holders for the franchises. This means LWT only had lost its on-air identity.
This icon was only used between 2001 and 2004 by LWT's then parent company, Granada. It follows the trend of the other icons used back then: a flat logo coloured white-pink over a purple background. It was primarily used in endboards.
