Cybernet (also known as Interactive) was a weekly video gaming magazine programme, originally broadcast overnight on the ITV network in the United Kingdom. The programme was commissioned by Yorkshire Television and produced by Capricorn Programmes[1] (who also produced the similar Movies, Games and Videos) and also aired on GBC TV in Gibraltar. It was also broadcast on various television stations all around the world.
