I hate to differ. |
I expected it to be all about what a wonderful modern City Newcastle is but found it rather a condescending look into the past. Typical of the way that The BBC people in London think of the unsophisticated North
The stereotyping of Geordies was particularly bad.
Not at all an advert for the part of the world that produced me and so many others.
I guess that if it had been advertised as a trip down memory lane I would have been less disappointed (but not much less).
I also notice that the blessed Miriam who was last in town in 1971 managed to miscount the bridges!!
