Somebody is very confused....
« on: January 03, 2019, 05:06:56 PM »
About the location of the BBC Tees building......
Is it in Middlesbrough or is it in Stockton-on-Tees.

Two things
1. I notice you didn't get accosted by Hi-Vis wearing BBC security thugs claiming you can't film there.
2. Wouldn't it be better for Middlesbrough, if the BBC were located far away from the town, because A.) it's the BBC and b.) That building is ugly.

Thank you to NRU for the public service journalism and placing himself in harms way to get a news story....well that's what the BBC would say..... ;)

Lets be clear on this BBC, I do not condone breaking the law.... Subscription is your future...... My Firewalls block all things BBC...So do you feel lucky - Goon....

Like in Stockton for example  :chinscratch: Many Years ago there was an ILR Radio Station called 'Radio Tees' based in Dovecot Street, Stockton. Perhaps that is the cause of the confusion  :doh2:

I remember Great North Radio from my Catterick days (early 90s). I swear the 50% of stuff advertised was for firms in Portrack Lane. I needed a new door handle for my cooker. Where did I find it?

Portrack Lane.

Later, I worked for two companies based in Redcar and Stockton. I'm sure fate kept dragging me back there.

Ah, Great North Radio. Oh how the memories come flooding back  ;)

ANY Radio Station has got to be better than BBC Radio Toss  :smile:

And BTW, You can find almost anything on "Portrack Lane" provided You know where to Look  ;)

I remember that catchy little advert jingle playing in the Tyne Tees region back in the day.
They were on Portrack Lane. Whatever happened to them?

I did start writing a little ditty but never finished it off:

"A grandfather clock, a weather vane,
You'll find them all on Portrack lane"

"The biggest bed you've ever seen,
Down the Lane in TS 18"

"Widgets, large and small and round,
On Portrack Lane these can be found".

I might finish it off some day.
