Wondering if That's Manchester has given up on anything but news? I don't watch it much as I don't live in the UK, however I am back for a little while so decided to tune in.
for today only shows 'Manchester Headline News' right up until tomorrow when Talking Pictures TV starts. However, they couldn't show 'Manchester Headline News' - after a poor fade-out from TPTV, a couple of false starts and some repeated adverts, 'Manchester Last Week Now' started.
I noted that this show had a window backdrop, although I couldn't tell where it was (possibly the backdrop from That's Lancashire in Preston). Also, I note that the backdrop for studio links and interviews has changed to the basic purple used in other areas (or perhaps they are filming it from another area?) without the TV in the middle and without the silver bands.
Finally, they haven't updated YouTube with new episodes of 'Student Speak' or 'The Geek Show' since August.
Seems like they're cost-cutting and taking further steps backwards.
Saddened to see that the UK's third (or second depending on how you view it) city has such a terrible service compared to Liverpool and Leeds next door.
