Umm, Sky having a


They picked the wrong Sunderland - the hamlet in Cumbria, part of the Blindcrake parish.


Ha. It's like the moving map on BA Flights, always indicated the tiny village of Stansted in Kent, rather than the airport in Essex.
Hopefully the actual navigation system had the right one indicated !

I commented on the strange setup not the Tweet that linked the video.

Incidentally, the BARB figures are out for Burley's new show and unsurprisingly it doesn't make top the15. Stephen Dixon makes number one with the 8am half hour of his Sunday show and number eight for the 7.30am 30 minutes.

Bet Kay loves that!


Last time I checked Stephen had a co-host...


While presenting from home, it seemed to be his cat


So Timmy's outrating Kay too! I see she's still got a bee in her bonnet about Tony Abbott.

It's funny, but looks as though someone just created the text label for Sunderland and then forgot to move it to the correct position. I bet they feel silly now.

Come on, we've all done something similar at times in documents or presentations. Don't give them a hard time, as they've even hung monkeys for less in the North East. Very Happy

Quote:
Legend has it that during the Napoleonic Wars of the early 19th century, a shipwrecked monkey was hanged by the people of Hartlepool, believing him to be a French spy! To this day, people from Hartlepool are affectionately known as 'monkey hangers'.

I think it's how Billy A says, they punched in the name into 'the computer' and out came the village in Cumbria ?
Although whoever did the map possibly doesn't realise Northumberland and County Durham are actually, err.. counties (There's kind of a huge clue in the name of one of them !)

It's the 'Sat Nav' generation I'm afraid Cool

Yes, put the name in the graphics template and it will add a point.

I was taught maths in the days of slide rules, you had to know roughly what the answer was, to interpret the correct result.

Then calculators came along......
valley, Stuart and derek500 gave kudos
