B B C Teletext
Started by: cindy (5700)   Report abuse
Mornings I tend to watch B B C Teletext to see whats going on,News for Northwest is split into 4 regions, Cumbria, Lancashire, Liverpool, Manchester. Lately there are More sports results than News. Surely there must be something to report.

I've also noticed this, a lack of news stories on the BBC regional teletext service, just football stuff, are their journalist on strike? Is there nothing worth reporting?

Granada Reports is almost as bad, about 5 minutes actual news and the rest sport.

I've had a look at most BBC local news teletext pages, all of them more or less the same. There's obviously something going on, I remember reading sometime ago, that the BBC local news was causing some local newspapers to close. Could be connected?

You may be right there Dave, Though there would be more detail in the newspaper.
