Scarborough is set to be the subject of a programme in a new BBC2 series focussing on British towns presented by the umbrella-carrying Nick Crane. We were paid a visit by researcher Laura yesterday who was particularly interested in the CHART Scarborough project with a view to featuring it on the programme.
It was good to hear that, unlike the majority of TV programmes, Nick plays a role in deciding the programme’s content and so a copy of CHART Scarborough map and a set of postcards are heading back to the man with the brolly, who is of a course a geographer and map-fan himself, to see if he wants to come and have a chat about it when they’re visiting Scarborough next week. As fans of the Map Man and Coast series we’re quite excited here at Electric Angel.
The series (with or without CHART) is due to be broadcast late summer 2011.
