  1. Speakers' Corner
    A thread for discussion on film and television in London.
  2. City Talk
    I've trawled the City Talk forum and I don't think we have one yet. Showcase media in, around and about your city. TV shows set in your city, radio shows about your city, newspaper clippings, pictures of local newspaper/radio/TV headquarters, etc etc. Should be good :) I'll smash the...
  3. Cumbria
    The BBC Region - "The North East and Cumbria" A current discussion in the Skybar (and in the 'Admin Thread' 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 in the "North East...
  4. Newcastle Metro Area
    A proposed EVENING CHRONICLE article about the Newcastle Forum of skyscrapercity.com . . . In continuation of my earlier post (quoted above) the third part of my discussions of the other morning with the Features Editor of the Evening Chronicle, about previous 'due credit' not being given to...
  5. Liverpool Metro Area
    I know there's already a thread in the Beacon called 'Liverpool in the media', which is about how Liverpool and Merseyside are shown and portrayed on and by the media; but this thread is about media news and developments within the Liverpool City Region. With the government plans for local...
  6. Newcastle Metro Area
    . We have a thread on 'Newcastle in the Media' but maybe we could also do with one on 'The Media in Newcastle' . . . For example, I came across this on the DCMS website (via BBC), about Newcastle being one of the 65 cities for local TV stations (now there's an idea! Wonder why no-one's ever...
  7. Newcastle Metro Area
    Newcastle Chronicle Ltd - A 1930s Tour of the Chronicle's old Westgate Road HQ The 'Newcastle Chronicle Ltd in the 1930s' series, is a series of posts originally published on the Historic Newcastle thread. Copies of these posts remain on there, quite correctly as that is where many people...
  8. Newcastle Metro Area
    I know we have the Historic Newcastle thread, and that a LOT of old Newspaper Articles have featured on there, and doubtless will continue to do so. It is just that I have (as I am sure many others have) a number of copies of "old issues" of our main local newspapers, that do not necessarily...
  9. Sunderland and Durham
    BBC Newcastle Is this station anti Sunderland? There have been letters recently in the Footy Echo suggesting this. For example, the stations sports desk fails to mention Sunderland Women's football teams results despite them being top of the Ladies Premier League recently. .
  10. Newcastle Metro Area
    I thought it would be good to have a thread for discussions about "Newcastle and the North East" portrayed in and by the Media. YouTube clips, songs, cinema films, tv documentaries, tv shows, etc etc. Feel free to post. I've gathered just a few clips from YouTube to start us off with...
  11. Completed Manchester Projects
    Jumping the gun a bit here, but after searching the web for any credible articles and knowing how ruthless Peel are and how they normally get what they want, I have decided to put my head on the chopping block and predict Granada will move to Mediacity/Salford Quays. I was going to post this...
  12. The Electric Press
    Article in today's YEP not on their website saying that regional agency Screen Agency are launching a new initative to make the region into the no1 destination for film and television production in the United Kingdom. Here is the press release from the Screen Yorkshire Website...
  13. Birmingham Metro Area
    A thread to highlight the midlands and its coverage in the media. Be that big 'blockbuster' films or innovative drama and new film, film sets. Several programmes make use of the variety of landscapes in the midlands. Wire in the Blood have used aerial shots and Dalziel and Pascoe and Doctors...
  14. Liverpool Metro Area
    This thread is for representations of Liverpool in the media and any issues raised by how the city is represented. As I write, there is a piece on Radio 4's Today programme about the UNESCO visit to Liverpool, and the danger of the city losing its WHS if it goes ahead with the museum. The key...
  15. Manchester Metro Area
    Oh yes! :) Central Spine has some serious competition if this article is to be believed. They think it's all over. It isn't yet? Media city's bid to woo the Beeb QUAYS: Site of the bid. DETAILS of a futuristic 200-acre Media City have been revealed as part of Salford's bid to lure the...
