24th October 2021 Dear Readers Over the last week the mainstream Regional TV News- services for North West England have reverted to type: There has been precious little coverage of Cumbria on BBC North West Tonight and virtually none on ITV Granada Reports: On both Regional News programmes Greater Manchester and Merseyside have featured veryContinue reading “Places like Millom, Ireleth and Duddon Bridge Should Not be in the ITV Granada Region”
21st October 2021 Dear Readers Here are some views of a part of Cumbria, which almost certainly never features on either BBC1 North West Tonight or on ITV1 Granada Reports. To be fair, North Cumbrian viewers seldom see this part of Cumbria featured on ITV1 News Border Lookaround or BBC Look North (NE/ Cumbria) either!Continue reading “A Cold Bright Autumn Day in the North Cumbrian Pennines.”
BBC North West Tonight covers the Northern North West of England rather more than ITV Granada Reports
16th October 2021 If you live in Lancashire you should always pick BBC1 North West Tonight over ITV1 Granada Reports if you want geographically- appropriate coverage. On Thursday evening, BBC1 North West Tonight had two news-features about Cumbria- one about raw sewage getting into Lake Windermere and the second about Moorside, next to Sellafield inContinue reading “BBC North West Tonight covers the Northern North West of England rather more than ITV Granada Reports”
The Good Folk of North Lancashire want Cumbrian News more than folk in Carlisle want Newcastle-upon-Tyne News.
10th October 2021 On Friday 27th September 1991, the BBC transferred Carlisle and northern Cumbria from the BBC North West transmission area to the BBC North East transmission area- so that local folk could get the North East England version of BBC1 Look North, rather than BBC North West Tonight, which had been broadcast toContinue reading “The Good Folk of North Lancashire want Cumbrian News more than folk in Carlisle want Newcastle-upon-Tyne News.”
1st October 2021 Three fairly serious developments have gone unreported across northern Lancashire this week, both on BBC1 North West Tonight and ITV1 Granada Reports. Firstly, there was an attempted murder in Blackpool whereby a young man aged just 19 years-old was attacked and stabbed outside a nightclub by nine men who came from London.Continue reading “Neither BBC North West Tonight nor ITV1 Granada Reports cover Northern Lancashire well”
Much has happened in Cumbria recently- about which North Lancastrians were Not Told from their Default Regional TV.
30th September 2021 Dear Readers To illustrate the lack of news-coverage that North Lancastrians and South Cumbrians stuck with BBC1 North West Tonight and ITV1 Granada Reports actually get about northern North West England here are some recent news- features that would have been of significant interest to viewers, that they nonetheless got to hearContinue reading “Much has happened in Cumbria recently- about which North Lancastrians were Not Told from their Default Regional TV.”
Both mainstream Regional TV News- services for North West England seem to have a Moratorium of Cumbrian coverage- again
14th September 2021 Dear Readers Roughly once a month- for a period from a week to ten days- both BBC1 North West Tonight and ITV1 Granada Reports seem to agree amongst themselves that they will not cover Cumbria in news- output for that period: In other words, it is “Just Lancastria”- meaning the ancient regionContinue reading “Both mainstream Regional TV News- services for North West England seem to have a Moratorium of Cumbrian coverage- again”
Geographical Centres of Gravity and Proportions of Local News with Regional TV with Lancaster’s Localness Onion.
7th September 2021 Dear Readers It is vital that viewers of Regional Television get a news-service that is not just local, but which also covers the most relevant and geographic- appropriate wider Regional News for their communities. To that end the average geographic location of most of the content and the proportion of coverage thatContinue reading “Geographical Centres of Gravity and Proportions of Local News with Regional TV with Lancaster’s Localness Onion.”
28th August 2021 I went on a trip out with my father on a lovely warm and sunny Bank Holiday Saturday. Here is a the view of a small market- town in North Cumbria that you will never hear about on BBC1 North West Tonight, and you most definitely won’t hear about it on ITV1Continue reading “A Beautiful Day in North Cumbria”
24th August 2021 It’s good to see after all this time, but after seeming to totally ignore the half of North West England that is north of Lancaster for so long ITV1 Granada Reports have started to cover Cumbria. It is a joy to see but two significant pieces on Cumbrian affairs: The first isContinue reading “Have ITV Granada Reports News- Programmers become aware of this Website: They are covering Cumbria.”
