It was a program about Manchester, not the North West. It didn't mention any other place (in a negative way or otherwise) and why should it, it was a program about MANCHESTER.Accura said:Half of it was interesting. The second half was just the usual 'oh isnt manchester so fantastic and the rest of the north west blows bollocks'
If i count as a 'usual suspect' then a combination of work, international football friendlies and a self imposed 'quality not quantity' posting regime is my excuse.jrb said:Typical Granada piece. Started of well, but finished with a whimper. Still, Manchester certainly has changed for the better in the last 10 years, as we know. :wink2:
BTW. What's happened to the Manchester Forum again? Talk about passing tumble weeds over the last few days. Where are the usual suspects? Surely everyone can't be on holiday the the same time?
Roll call please!
I have no chip on my shoulder. These kind of programs from Granada get boring and corny after a while though. And lets face it, they do a hell of a lot of them about Manchester. In case they havnt noticed, there are 5 other cities in the North West.retep68 said:It was a program about Manchester, not the North West.

That's a big chip on your shoulder
Regional ITV pogrammes are deliberately shite, because the now homogenised, London-based company doesn't want to have to bother with them. They're forced to create a minimal amount by law, but obviously if no one bothers tuning in, they can argue for a change in broadcast regulations which omitts local programmes entirely.Jon Reid said:The programme was shite really. Production quality was terrible. When Granada are making local programmes what do they do? Hire some media students from Bolton fucking institute to make them? I'm so very glad it wasn't broadcasted nationally.
