This Website is the basis for a Campaign for more Local TV in Lancashire and Cumbria that is relevant to viewers.

I am a 54-year-old man who lives near Alston in the north-east of Cumbria, where I have lived for most of my life. Currently I work as a free-lance Book-keeper and live with my father. We now live alone after my mother passed away in January 2021.

I used to regularly watch BBC North West Tonight and can remember my dismay when, on 27th September 1991, I discovered that BBC North West Tonight chopped- off all but southernmost Cumbria: It dawned on me what this meant and I signed “No more news from Home [North Cumbria] whilst at University”!
