Articles about Regional Television in the North West and North East of England about shortfalls in Regional Programming, and how the northern two thirds of the North West and Northumberland are sidelined by BBC North West Tonight, ITV Granada and BBC Look North (Newcastle).

About Me

I am a 50 year old man who lives near Alston in the north-east of Cumbria, where I have lived for most of my life. I work as a free-lance Book-keeper.

In 1992 I graduated from Lancaster University with a degree in Environmental Science and I lived in Lancaster for 14 years afterwards. I used to regularly watch BBC North West Tonight and can remember my dismay whilst studying at Lancaster University when, on 27th September 1991, I discovered that BBC North West Tonight chopped- off all but southernmost Cumbria: “No more news from Home [near Alston] whilst at University”, I sighed!
