Notts On TV

Less than six months to go before Nottingham gets its own television channel.

Having looked on their website they say they are making local programmes for local people. I wonder if they want to make a programme about this blog?

During the 1980s and 90s Nottingham used to have a television studio that belonged to the ITV network. Central TV on Lenton Lane produced some great shows like Auf Weidersehen Pet, Boon, Harry's Mad and Woof. Not forgetting Supermarket Sweep and Bob's Full House.

But when Central lost the broadcasting franchise, the studios closed and everything was sadly sold off. The building is now used by the university.

It will be interesting to see if Notts TV takes off and what sort of programmes they end up making. Of course I will be watching developments with interest and of course any future photo opportunities.
