Inside Out March 8 - the last in the series
I had quite a response to the dog breeding story and the Ivy Leaf Kennels in Burnhope on last week's show.
You'll have noticed we had quite a few comments on the blogs I did on the subject. Some we couldn't publish as they broke the house rules.
A lot of you emailed me directly as well. Suffice it to say only one comment was in support of Kevin Knox and his kennels. It will be interesting to see what Durham Trading Standards do about this case. We'll keep an eye on it.
Talking of which, tonight's show is the last in the current series and includes a catch up on some of the stories we've covered. I'm often asked:
"What Happened Next?"
Well tonight we've some cracking examples of the successes we've had in rooting out the bad guys and some delightful results in helping the good guys.
We're also looking at what is now the classic wartime slogan of Keep Calm and Carry On. But did you know it almost never saw the light of day?
Although thousands of copies were printed they were never used back in the 1940's. The poster was rediscovered quite by chance by a Northumberland bookseller.
It's an incredible story and designer Linda Barker reveals just how those once redundant five words have become a cult icon.
The links were shot in Hartlepool this week.
For the wartime poster story we used the Heugh Battery Museum on the Headland as the backdrop. Just round the corner from the wartime gun emplacement is the statue of cartoon character Andy Capp, which as you can see I had a bit of fun with.
Although this is the last programme in the current series I will continue the blog.
You might want to add my blog postings as a feed to your email software. You'll find a guide on how to do this here.
As for when we're back on air? Hopefully towards the end of the Summer. As soon as I know for definite I'll be sure to let you know.
