Yorkshire Look North (Yorkshire)
The BBC are coming to Bradford next week, with a pop up newsroom in The Broadway





I prepare to be surprised, but I wouldn’t be shocked if it was just a load of positive vox pops rather than tackling the real issues and just a tick box exercise to show that the BBC aren’t London biased after all.

Not really that much to do with Yorkshire but Luxmy did Saturday's BBC London News bulletin


There seems to be a theme with Leeds reporters covering Saturday shifts at BBC London. Ali Fortescue used to cover the reporting shift there while working at Look North and continues to occasionally cover there while freelance.

That’s all it will be, the problem really Bradford is too close to Leeds and all the big jobs are there, so Bradford will always play second fiddle, personally I’m just glad they filled that dreadful hole after years of having it.

Just caught the most extraordinary report on Levy's Late Look North. Reporter Philip Norton reporting on his own dads' death at the hands (allegedly) of a local hospital trust. How can this be impartial and how the hell did it get through the producer guidelines?

Yorkshire Look North (Yorkshire)
There was literally no news at all on Look North tonight, no round up back in the studio, no round up of the weekend’s sport, nothing.

We did get the weather though.


'We've come to Bradford to focus on Good News, however it's Monday and the first day here, so we haven't got any yet, so we are just going to waffle on and on'.

As someone who has lived in Bradford for years, that was terrible!

Good grief. That's serious and shows a total lack of editorial savviness to say the least.
