A Letter to the Secretary of State for Digital Culture Media and Sport.

If anyone who lives in Cumbria or in Northumberland does not consider their respective Regional bulletins to be relevant or up to scratch for them, details of The Right Hon. Oliver Dowden and the Department of Digital Culture Media and Sport are listed in the above article . Sending emails is a waste of time, so I would strongly encourage people to write a letter and send it in the post to the address at the top of this article.


1st August 2020

I have penned a letter to the Right Hon Sir Oliver Dowden, the Secretary of State for Digital Culture Media and Sport- for the time has come to act and say something on behalf of 200,000 viewers in Cumbria who often don’t get coverage of their county for a week or more on both BBC North West Tonight and ITV Granada. I write, too, for a million others in the North West who travel to Cumbria on days out, who friends and family there and who drink the water that falls in Cumbria. If, dear readers of this Website, you read this- and the issues about Cumbria not being covered in North West Regional bulletins concern you then do feel free to use the letter below as a template:

I live near Alston in north -east Cumbria (and yes, it is in North West England). I have friends who live in the middle part of North West England - near Lancaster (which is where I went to University and used to live until 14 years ago). A big problem is that the Regional Television Bulletins for the North West covers the southern third of the Region about 90%,(plus a part of Derbyshire which is NOT the North West of England), covers the middle third of North West England poorly and covers the northern third of North West England not at all! People living in the westernmost part of North West England (around St. Bees Head) have local BBC news on their televisions which is 90% about North East England!!
