CUMBRIA in the MEDIA - Media 'based here' and also how Cumbria is 'portrayed in' all forms of Media

The BBC Region - "The North East and Cumbria"

A current discussion in the Skybar (and in the 'Admin Thread', and in our 'Communal Area') about the coverage of CUMBRIA issues on Skyscrapercity, reminded me that one of the reasons it is fairly logical that Cumbria is covered on SSC under our forum (in our 'Communal Area') is because of the long-term links that Carlisle and the West Coast has with Newcastle for its MEDIA COVERAGE.

The "North East and Cumbria" BBC Region has been around for a very long time . . .



Here are some external links to websites covering the North East and Cumbria Region . . .

Actually Cumbria was moved to BBC Manchester from 1986 to 1991. Apart from recent revelations, we had to endure Stuart Hall and his OTT and boring presentation and news about places even further away than the North East like Tarporley in Cheshire. The BBC eventually had to back down as there were thousands of complaints and we got Mike Neville back in 1991.

I was interviewed on Look North (or whatever it was back then) when I was about 10 or 11 years old. My school had been voted best in the country and they sent the local TV to film us. I had designed a crane that used two stacked coke cans with marbles arranged around the rim of the lower can to act as ball bearings and allow the jib to rotate. They cut the talking out and just showed a clip of me controlling this crane using a computer.

Ennerdale and kinniside school. The headteacher had us all learning about subatomic particles and building remote control cars out of wood.

Also don't forget Border News and Lookaround, hosted by Eric Wallace for every 30 years, and at its height the most popular local news bulletin in Britain. OK it was a bit parochial and cheaply made, but it was well liked and Wallace was a good presenter.
Also CFM Radio had a huge following in its early days, with an audience share of 40 per cent in the nineties. Its mixture of current hits, pop from the sixties onwards, phone ins, specialist programmes and charity campaings proved very popular, and it was certainly better than what the BBC was offering at the time. Notable presenters from the early days were Mike Charlton, Hughie Myers, Chris White and Melanie Everett.

Peter Rabbit gets a modern twist but stays in Lake District
By Ian Robson, Sunday Sun, 26th May 2013



Peter Rabbit is to get a modern makeover inspired by the Lake District, as Much loved characters from Beatrix Potter's books have been revamped for a new animated TV series. The creators behind a new animated series due to air on CBeebies have given Peter a girlfriend for the first time. Lily Bobtail, daughter of Dr Warren Bobtail, will join Peter and his cousin Benjamin Bunny on their adventures. The producers have made her independently-minded and she often gets Peter out of trouble, but in all other ways the series will stay true to the original stories by Beatrix Potter.



Director David McCamley said the stories are still set in the Lake District where Beatrix Potter created the stories of Peter and his friends including Jemima Puddleduck. The cartoonists even managed to get Hilltop Cottage, where Beatrix lived, into the picture. The locations and the original watercolours by Beatrix were a huge inspiration for the 21st Century re-imagining. He said: “Beatrix Potter’s artwork is so beautiful and inspiring and had a huge influence on the final look of the series. To capture her world and characters we immersed ourselves in everything Potter. We visited the Lake District and took thousands of photos and continually referenced them to make sure every detail of Peter’s world was authentic."

The series can be seen from Monday June 3rd 2013, and is primarily aimed at the very young and their parents.

Michael Buerk filming in Cockermouth for new TV series
By Jenny Barwise, News & Star, 26th September 2013


Michael Buerk is shown the ropes during filming in Cockermouth

The secret of why presenter Michael Buerk has been out and about in Cockermouth can finally be revealed as television bosses announce a new series which focuses on one of its major attractions. Bosses and workers at Wordsworth House and Gardens have had to remain tight-lipped about the newsreader’s visits over the past few months.

Michael is presenting a new behind-the-scenes series for ITV which will be aired next month and features six National Trust properties, and one of the major stars of the show is the Cockermouth house, which is expected to appear in each of the 20 episodes of Inside the National Trust.

The series sees Michael uncover secrets and learn new skills at each location. In Cockermouth he spends time as an apprentice manservant and trainee gardener, preparing strawberry fritters, making liquid soap with soapwort from the garden as well as getting dressed up as a Georgian dandy.

Radio Cumbria( originally Radio Carlisle) has recently celebrated its 40th birthday. Its most famous product is Richard Madeley, who worked as a journalist in the mid seventies before moving to Border in 1978 and then to Yorkshire in 1980. The rest, as they say, is history as he helped launch This Morning with his wife in 1988 and became one of the most successful presenters of the nineties and noughties.

If you're referring to Richard Madeley, I know he lived in Cumbria for about five years before moving to Yorkshire. Maybe he did a report from Maryport and the name stuck, but wouldn't know where he lived.
The original BBC Radio Carlisle tried its best on limited funds and only broadcast to the northern half of Cumbria until 1982 when its name changed. Typically they would only be on air for eight hours a day due to budget constraints, but they always seemed to manage to produce fairly professional programmes and covered local sports and events well.

Cumbria's rich railway heritage showcased on TV

By Kelly Pattison

Published at 11:32, Monday, 04 January 2016

Cumbria's rich railway heritage takes centre stage on two television shows this week.



Tonight the seventh series of Michael Portillo’s popular Great British Railway Journeys begins on BBC2 and will see the former politician travel from Carlisle to Penrith, taking in parts of the northern Lakes.

The 6.30pm show will see him explore Carlisle’s biscuit-making history by joining ‘cracker packers’ on McVitie’s factory floor to find out more about the Victorian appetite for the custard cream. Viewers will also see the adventurous side of the former politician as he takes on a perilous descent at Honister Slate Mine, namely the Via Ferrata ropewalk challenge in the Borrowdale Valley.

His journey through Cumbria continues tomorrow between Windermere and Carnforth when he visits the home of author Beatrix Potter before going on to Brantwood where Victorian art critic John Ruskin lived.

On Thursday the focus moves on to the Settle-Carlisle Railway, one of the most scenic railways in the country, as big budget period drama Jericho begins on ITV1 at 9pm.

Jericho is set in the north-western Yorkshire Dales in the 1870s, when the construction of the Settle to Carlisle Railway saw an army of workers living there in shanty towns.

Its cast includes Call The Midwife actor Jessica Raine, York-born Full Monty actor Mark Addy and Clarke Peters, of The Wire.

Steve Coogan to play Cumbrian comedy giant in major new film

Published at 10:53, Tuesday, 19 January 2016

One of Cumbria's most famous exports is to be portrayed on the big screen by Steve Coogan.



The Alan Partridge star will team up with John C Reilly to play much-loved double act Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy.

Stan & Ollie will be written by Jeff Pope, who won a Bafta award for Philomena, which starred Dame Judi Dench alongside Coogan.

Jon Baird, who directed James McAvoy in Filth, is on board for the dramatisation, described as an "emotional tribute to two of the funniest men in movie history".

Stan & Ollie, developed by BBC Films, centres on the ageing duo's 1953 variety hall tour of Britain.

Ulverston-born Laurel (Coogan) and American Hardy (Reilly) have to deal with initially disappointing attendances and Hardy's failing health.

The problems threaten to overwhelm their partnership as the two men attempt to reconnect with each other, in addition to their fans.

The comedy giants also have to come to terms with the end of their careers.

Laurel and Hardy were one of the most critically acclaimed comedy teams of early American cinema.

Their films produced by Hal Roach during the 1920s and 1930s included classics such as The Music Box, Sons Of The Desert and Way Out West. Laurel died in 1965 aged 74.

New BBC TV drama has support cast of many Cumbrians

15 March 2016 5:12PM

A CAST of Cumbrians are preparing to see themselves taking starring roles in a big new drama.

Hundreds of supporting artistes from the county make up the cast of The A Word, which will soon air on BBC One.

An exclusive invite-only screening of the programme will be shown at Zeffirellis Cinema in Ambleside on Thursday, ahead of the six-part series going on air.

The drama – described as a funny and thought provoking series about parenthood and childhood – was filmed in places including Keswick, Thirlmere and Coniston.

It stars former Dr Who Christopher Eccleston, already no stranger to the county through his starring role in hit ITV series Safe House, shot in the same area.

The Cumbrians signed up to take part were recruited by Carlisle-based Lakeside Castings, whose boss, Phil McKay, is looking forward to being among the guests at this week’s special screening.

The A Word tells the story of the Hughes family who discover their six-year-old son has autism.

Its broadcasting is being eagerly anticipated by many who are keen to see how it shines a light – or even dispels myths – linked to the conditions.

Providing the cast to meet the challenges of such a big production was a huge challenge for Phil, of Stanwix.
