Previously dirty Mersey, sewage in Manchester, then quickly moving on to spend more time in Chatsworth House. Two major cities given little attention, instead focusing on the seat of an aristocrat.

Dreadful little programme.

I agree. It would actually be generous to say the Liverpool and Manchester sections were rushed. That said, looking at the bright side, it did at least highlight the fact we still have a functioning port, and one that process more cargo than the old docks ever did. A few nice shots of the skyline might also have opened a few eyes as to how the city has developed as well.

It didn't really do that. It implied that we have a busy river, because MANCHESTER still has the busy port, as that is where all those ships on the river where supposed to be headed... that was the link to the ship canal!

It was a realy poor show. Must say that the Manchester piece was garbage too though.

Thought you might find this article interesting.
Interesting in that it doesn't see to mention Liverpool at all (one of the cities that has changed most) and all the cities mentioned are regional centres for the BBC (except perhaps Gateshead which is a two minute walk across the Tyne from Newcastle. I'm assuming that Newcastle is still the HQ of BBC NE).
