New BBC One North

If you think Humberside went a long time ago, Middlesex was abolished in 1965, but you tell the Post Office or the Cricket Club that!

Or the rugby union county, or the RFU, "Middlesex sevens"!

On a serious note, BBC North has existed before, in the mid 80s, to the early 1990s. It was during this period, that the whole of Cumbria was moved from the North East, to the North West. This was despite public complaints and campaigns. This was corrected in the mid 1990s. Could we possibly see BBC North West serving the whole of Cumbria, or just the Southern part of Cumbria?

BBC North as a TV region was Manchester based and B2 from Holme Moss. When the regional split between Leeds and Manchester the BBC had impented a band III tx at Winter Hill on B12. Leeds continued on B2 Holme Moss and B13 Belmont. North from Leeds must have got as far as Dublin and the IoM..... The Radio4 VHF opt-outs could have come from Mancheter, Piccadilly Gardens, but I believe actually came fromm BH, Leeds?
