BroadcastingThe legendary Granada TV sign that was taken down in September by ITV could reportedly find a new home in a Manchester museum.
Last week, ITV removed the giant red letters from its Quay Street building in Manchester, where they had been in place for more than 50 years.
The broadcaster said that the action was taken due to health and safety concerns as the sign had become "extensively corroded", but the move was met with outrage from the public.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Manchester's Museum Of Science And Industry (MOSI) has now offered to house the iconic sign.
MOSI director Tony Hill said: "The Granada sign is synonymous with the Manchester skyline. If ITV don't want the sign anymore we would definitely be interested in looking after it."
Jack Hale, a founder member of the Manchester Modernist Society, said that MOSI could provide a fitting home for what is viewed as an important part of the city's history.
"It's genuinely iconic for the North-West. It means a lot to a lot of people. The story struck a chord with everyone because the sign brings back a lot of memories," Hale said.
"I hope the sign will be repaired and put back on the building but at the very least, it should be cleaned up and put in a museum. I think MOSI would make an excellent new home for it."
ITV management said that work to examine the giant letters would start soon, and no decision had been made as yet on the sign's future.
