Cast and crew of hit ITV show Vera back filming in Newcastle

The cast of ITV’s hit show Vera has been back in the North East filming for the new series.

Huge spotlights and trucks were spotted in Dinnington, Newcastle, on Monday night as filming continues across the region. Temporary traffic lights were installed on the roads as the production team set up base near the Horton Grange Hotel.

A crew member said they were filming for the crime drama’s new series, which will see Brenda Blethyn return as the raincoat-wearing detective DCI Vera Stanhope.

Last month, the production team was busy recording in Newbiggin-by-the-Sea in Northumberland and Peterlee in County Durham. Scenes have already also been shot in Seaton Delaval, Blyth and Seaton Sluice. Filming for the eighth series is expected to last around five months, a ITV1 spokesman said.

Nobody has mentioned the sex trials of the West End and there is much in the papers currently. The Independent has sent a reporter out on the streets to talk to neighbours and that report is here. Julie Bindel comments in the Guardian here. Absent Councillor Forbes twitters about the bravery of the victims in cooperating with the police and court process - I guess you need to be brave to hold councillor surgeries too.

Vera author sets new novel in home town of Whitley Bay

From the News Guardian @ http://www.newsguardian.co.uk/news/v...-bay-1-8697703
Vera author sets new novel in home town of Whitley Bay
James Willoughby 11 August 2017


Author Ann Cleeves. Picture by Micha Theiner

Award-winning crime writer Ann Cleeves is about to launch her latest novel, which is partly set in her beloved home town of Whitley Bay. The Seagull is the eighth instalment in the popular DI Vera Stanhope series.

The book focuses on police corruption deep in the heart of a community, and on fragile, and fracturing, family relationships. A cold case takes Vera back in time and very close to home – forcing her to dig deeper into her late father, Hector’s, murky reputation. Vera must confront her prejudices and unwanted memories to dig out the truth, as the past begins to collide dangerously with the present. A visit to her local prison brings DI Stanhope face-to-face with an old enemy; former detective superintendent, and now inmate, John Brace. Brace was convicted of corruption and involvement in the death of a gamekeeper – and Vera played a part in his downfall.

Brace promises Vera information about the disappearance of Robbie Marshall, a notorious wheeler-dealer, if she will look out for his daughter and grandchildren. He tells her that Marshall is dead, his body buried close to St Mary’s Island. However, when a search team investigates, officers find not one skeleton, but two.

Reflecting on the book, Ann said: “I love the fact that this book is set in Whitley Bay. It was such fun to write. The book is dedicated to the regulars in my local pub, The Rockcliffe Arms. I was sitting there listening to their stories and some of them triggered some the plot lines in the book.”

The Seagull is being published by Macmillan on Thursday, September 7, in hardback, priced £16.99.

It's almost too grim to comment. Probably an obvious point but if we cover this can we be 'sensitive'.

The Benton Farm Branch of the "Newcastle Dog and Cat Shelter" to star on Channel 4.



The Channel 4 programme 'Clear the Shelter' hosts a unique five-day live event across the week from Monday to Friday, at a branch of the Newcastle Dog and Cat shelter

We all love animals – don’t we? Britain is home to more than 16 million pet dogs and cats*. But every year, some 250,000 domestic animals* find themselves abandoned to the care of rescue centres. In 2016, animal charities reported sharp increases in cases of stray and unwanted pets coming through their doors, some dealing with record intakes. Now, more than ever, this displaced pet population needs help.

To highlight this plight, Channel 4 has commissioned 'Clear the Shelter', a unique five-day live event stripped across the week from Monday to Friday. Its aims: a call to action for the nation to provide forever homes for these displaced, deserving dogs and cats, rabbits and birds – and the chance of a happy ending for each and every one, and to dismantle the stigma associated with rescue animals and encourage would-be owners to consider them first over buying a young pet.

Based in the Newcastle Dog & Cat Shelter branch at Benton Farm, Professor Noel Fitzpatrick and Steve Jones hope to Clear the Shelter by helping to rehome all of the centre’s animals by the end of the week.

Across the country, many more rescue centres will also be taking part, and viewers looking to buy an animal will be encouraged to go to their local centre instead. Kate Quilton will be the show’s resident reporter, taking us to the front line of the rehoming process and following adoptions as they happen in real time. Throughout the series, viewers will be directed to a special website and dedicated network of experts ready to advise and help them begin the process of adopting an animal. As the process of adoption commences applicants will be subject to strict protocols (precisely in line with the featured shelters) to ensure the safety of animal adoptees.

Steve Jones, co-presenter of the programme, said: "This is going to be a great show with a great purpose. Can’t wait.” Tim Hancock, Commissioning Editor at C4 said: “We’re so glad to be working with Blast on this audacious and vital project. As an event, it has the potential to shift Britain’s attitudes towards adopting rescue animals, and as a series, it will make for unmissable TV as the country comes together to clear the shelters.”

Broadcast date in August 2017, To Be Confirmed.

Take a flight over the imposing Bamburgh Castle with this super drone footage.

See the stunning castle from a bird’s eye view with the skies perfectly clear. You can also see the beauty of Bamburgh Beach and the village of Bamburgh itself.

The fantastic footage comes from drone enthusiast Ian Perry, from Beverley in East Yorkshire. Ian was on holiday in Northumberland when he shot the video on his BeBop 2. He said he was up extra early in the morning to fly his drone overhead.

BeBop 2 - Bamburgh Castle - 1st Jun, 2017


Whilst on Holiday in Northumberland, I was determined to get a video of Bamburgh Castle, but, wasn't allowed to take off anywhere near the Castle itself; so, I found a place to park, about 800 metres to the South, and took off just to the North of this Car Park. My furthest/longest flight to date! The BeBop 2 reported just short of 1100 Metres at the furthest point of my flight. Don't worry though, as I have sped up the playback, in several places, so you don't have to sit through the whole 14 minutes.

Now, Martin Luther King's 1967 Newcastle visit, his speech, and the wider subject of race relations in the UK and US, are covered in the - Huffington Post . . .

50 Years On, Martin Luther King's U.K. Visit Offers Inspiration for Today
By Brian Dooley, Contributor Senior Advisor, Human Rights First, HUFFPOST, 24th September 2017


A copy of Brian Wards new book is currently on display at an exhibition in Newcastle upon Tyne

On the day of President Trump’s inauguration in January this year, a group of anti-racist protesters gathered in the English city of Newcastle upon Tyne in front of a memorial to eminent Nineteenth Century anti-slavery campaigner Earl Grey. There was also a smaller group of pro-Trump demonstrators associated with extreme right elements in the United Kingdom, some of whom held Confederate flags.

That the fight for civil rights in the United States was being played out in part in Newcastle is not so odd. That struggle has always been international, and Newcastle has a special place in its history. Fifty years ago, on 13 November 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King received his only U.K. honorary degree, from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne. The stirring speech he gave that day on receiving the doctorate in civil law was believed lost, only recently discovered in a university archive. King reminded his Newcastle audience that poverty, racism and war were shared problems, that there is “an inescapable network of mutuality,” and warned Britain that “all out troubles could soon be yours.”

The challenges King identified 50 years ago in Newcastle are wearyingly familiar: the “three urgent and indeed great problems that we face not only in the United States of America but all over the world today…the problem of racism, the problem of poverty and the problem of war,” he said.
U.S. leadership on civil rights mattered then, and it matters now. Brian Ward’s superb new book Martin Luther King in Newcastle Upon Tyne traces the history of the long-lost speech and King’s visit to Newcastle. King’s trip reconnected a thread established by Frederick Douglass’s time in the city in the 1840s and continued by Muhammed Ali during a visit in 1977. The book impressively analyzes the centuries-old relationship between the English city and the American civil rights movement, from Newcastle abolitionists to the petition signed by 40,000 locals the year to oppose a Trump state visit to the U.K.

Ward presents, in often extraordinarily compelling detail, how Britain has looked to American leadership on civil rights for many years, unearthing a 1965 letter from a 15 year-old schoolgirl from near Newcastle to King, saying she believed “what your movement is doing is right,” and hoping to “help in some small way.” In reaching back across the centuries to trace the U.S.-U.K. rights relationship the new book also provides a wonderful reminder that standard tools and tactics used by many international human rights groups today were pioneered by the Nineteenth Century antislavery movements in the U.S and U.K. There were consumer boycotts (“of sugar, cotton, rum and other items that bore the star of slave labor,”) pamphlets, posters, petitions, mass marches, documentation of abuses, extra parliamentary advocacy and insider political lobbying.

This new study expertly shows how all history is simultaneously local and international, how what happens in a city in north eastern England is influenced by - and sometimes influences - the grand sweeps of global social movements. King spoke in Newcastle of the urgent need “to get rid of racial injustice whether it exists in the Unites States of America, whether it exists in England, or whether it exists in South Africa - wherever it is alive it must be defeated.”

Historic video approx 12 minutes in length on You Tube, "Tyne Tunnel, Newcastle & Gateshead documentary from 1976"

Documentary set in Tyne and Wear.

A case of bureaucratic failings as a new tunnel under the River Tyne gets ignored by lorry drivers for a quicker, easier and cheaper route through the town centres it was meant to by-pass.

The Civic Centre is among the destinations for the BBC TV programme’s anniversary tour for 2017. Filming will take place at the Civic Centre on Thursday October 26th 2017. Coun. Kim McGuinness, Newcastle City Council’s cabinet member for culture and communities, said: “What a privilege it is for the Civic Centre to be the chosen venue to welcome the world famous Antiques Roadshow to Newcastle. Newcastle is renowned for a fascinating history and heritage and for hosting some of Europe’s leading festivals and events. Hosting the Antiques Roadshow in its 40th year is a great honour and will build on our reputation as a great northern city."

Visits in the past five years by the Antiques Roadshow to the National Trust’s Seaton Delaval Hall in Northumberland and Durham Cathedral have attracted huge turnouts. Antiques Roadshow was first recorded as a pilot show at Hereford Town Hall on May 17, 1977, presented by Bruce Parker with antiques expert Arthur Negus. Other filming dates for the programme in 2017 include (on July 6th) Floors Castle in Kelso, the family home of the Duke of Roxburgh, with views over the River Tweed and the Cheviot Hills and (on July 13th) Castle Howard in North Yorkshire. There will also be a special programme recorded at BBC Studios in Elstree featuring stories and objects from the entertainment world, filmed on the set of EastEnders.

Simon Shaw, executive producer of Antiques Roadshow, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming thousands of visitors to each Antiques Roadshow in 2017. It’s a real chance to be part of the programme’s history and to have an enjoyable, informative free day out, seeing how the programme is made and meeting everyone who features on it. Even after almost 40 series, the winning formula of helping visitors unlock the story of their item’s past and hopefully astonishing them with its value, is still as popular as ever.”

Northumberland town is transformed as filming for Netflix drama Outlaw King gets under way

A Northumberland coastal town has gone 700 years back in time as filming for a new Netflix drama gets under way .

Filming for Outlaw King, a period film about the King of Scotland Robert the Bruce, is taking place on Monday and Tuesday. Over the last week, crews from Loudoun Productions Limited have turned the Berwick quayside into the Port of Glasgow, while the Old Bridge has been transformed into London Bridge. Hollywood actor Chris Pine will play the legendary king, who led the Scots during the First War of Scottish Independence against the English.

Berwick North councillor Catherine Seymour said crowds have been gathering down at the quayside to catch a glimpse of the action. “So far we’ve seen around 40 knights on horses and we’ve heard that Chris Pine is going to be filming tomorrow,” she said. It is really exciting and good publicity for us. There are a lot of local people who are working as extras and lots of people have come to watch. I have been talking to the location manager and some of the crew and they say that the area is great for filming because it is so beautiful.”

The Netflix drama will feature the seventh battle where the English king is finally pushed back into his own country. Oscar-nominated Scottish film director David Mackenzie is directing the film.

Robert lived from 1274 until 1329 and the film tells of his battle against the King of England, despite facing devastating odds. It is said that Robert had a famous encounter with a spider after being defeated six times on the battle field by the English. Hiding in a cave and close to giving up, he watched a spider attempt to spin its web across the mouth of the cave failing six times. But when the arachnid succeeded on its seventh attempt, Robert decided to battle on against the English.
