The Week: Media news - UKTV History set for rebrand

UKTV is to relaunch UKTV History as Yesterday as part of its ongoing rebranding of channels.

UKTV History will be relaunched in early 2009 alongside UKTV People, which becomes Blighty, and UKTV Documentary, which will be known as Eden. Yesterday will continue to have a focus on broadcasting history shows but will increasingly place an emphasis on more contemporary history. The first of UKTV's channels to rebrand was UKTV G2 as Dave in October 2007.
