Isn't King's Lynn viewership divided between the Belmont ("Hull news") and Sandy Heath ("Cambridge news") transmitters' signals, meaning that no King's Lynn terrestrial viewers actually get the news programmes that you'd most expect ("Norwich news" / Tacolneston transmitter)?


There is a relay in King's Lynn that has BBC East and ITV Anglia East as a relay of Tacolneston. Some of the other North Norfolk coastal towns also have relays as well, but there is still a sizable audience who use Belmont as they have a larger amount of Freeview channels being a main tx.

I think that it's mainly places on/near the north Norfolk coast that are readily considered to be in editorial Belmont-land (by BBC and ITV), as far east as Sheringham or possibly even Cromer (?).

King's Lynn is possibly the furthest-inland Norfolk settlement to be included.

I dunno whether the likes of Castle Rising, Dersingham or Little Walsingham are considered part of the patch? Surely not the likes of Fakenham though?

The story of Phil the Greek crashing his car near Sandringham made both Levy Live and Calendar.

Look Levy has been covering north west norfolk since day 1. King's Lynn is in the place names in the previous titles and on the weather map


Let's face it, Levy Live needs as much news it can get. In the past few months they've even stolen stories from Nottingham Today.

Yes, they have always taken claim of North West Norfolk. But I am surprised about Sheringham. Firmly in the Stewart and Susie patch!

Levy occasionally drops hints that Brenda watches him from Sandringham Sad

Yorkshire Look North (Yorkshire)
Just like the national Ten, it seems like this week was the week when summer holiday cover presenters reached their peak.

Ian White looks like he’s working 7 days this week, having done lunchtime Mon to Thur last week, Friday late, Saturday and he said he’s back tomorrow as well.

Friday’s Look North was Harry alongside Tanya Arnold, who also did Friday lunchtime, which is rare.

Meanwhile on Calendar, they drafted in Tina Gelder from behind the scenes to front the programme on Wednesday, her first on screen appearance in years, and by what the said, it was a fairly short notice call up.
