Going the other way (sort of) and, quite bizarre and unique in my experience, White Van Man's last credit screen says 'ITV Productions for BBC TV'!
Never seen The Royle Family?

I suppose Hancock sort of fits here for although all his classic stuff was under the wing of the BBC, didn't he finally cross to the 'other side', and like so many others who did that I seem to remember no good came of it. Not 100% clear in my recollections here and am open to correction.
Well, sort of. After the BBC Hancock series ended, he made some shows for ITV. But they weren't transfers of BBC radio programmes, which is what this thread is asking about!
(Incidentally, Hancock's first TV series - before Hacock's Half Hour itself transferred - was for ITV.)

No very true, but I know that the fabbo Mid Morning Matters made for t'Internet has been bought by a broadcaster for TV transmission. I hope it's the Beeb but I think I picked up somewhere that it may be a commercial one.
Channel 4, IIRC.
I submit: Second Thoughts.
And of course Dad's Army spin-off It Sticks Out Half A Mile to High & Dry.
And to diverge from the topic slightly, Whose Line Is It Anyway? went to Channel 4.
