I did manage to see it at a friend's house... can't believe they couldn't even bring themselves to view the rest of the house because they were so gutted with the area. 'Run down' - that's exactly how visitors see our town, a rundown !*!@# hole.

But is it any surprise they felt degraded being brought here considering the first thing you see when the camera comes on is the dingy, grimy, chava ridden top end with everyone looking frigid and sick of their lives - boarded up shops and the odd crisp packet blowing about? That woman looked like she was being abused from having to be here.

It's a desperate place Bedlington; at least that's what it was made out to be on national television.

channel 4's catch up is so !*!@# what ever happen to accessability? don't they read the stats of web browsers? they would realise only 17.5% use vista and you need either vista or mediacentre edition xp to run media player 11! what where they thinking! (not exactly bbc iplayer)

Yeah media player 11 will run on standard XP installs. "Genuine Advantage" validated of course ;)

I agree though Channel 4 definately needs to rethink its player, unfortunately their business model and reliance on traditional advertising revenue prevents them from doing this.

Can't say its Channel 4s fault for showing Bedlington in a bad light. Bedlington is a !*!@# hole and the reason for that I put squarely at the councils door. Too much money has gone out of this town and up the road to ashington, they keep taking about Bedlington getting this new market place but its too late....if it'll ever happen at all. And now the new council refuses to guarantee the £500k from the sale of Bedlington golf course will be spent in Bedlington!

All the town needs is a bit of investment, sort out the wasteland near Tescos, convert Elliotts garage and the church hall and the whole place will be looking much better.

Nowt like sucking the life out of a town and watching it die whilst chucking money at a town like ashington!

The sooner Wansbeck council curls up and die the better....the question is though, will Northumberland Council do any better? Hopefully (but very unlikely) a Place in the Sun will make the council sit up and notice, a town with such a proud history deserves better.

As the wench is from Blyth, she's probably a smack head <_<

It's true Bedlington is a dump :rolleyes:

I agree Pencilneck, it is a dump..it`s a depressing place at the moment. I hope things turn around soon.

You two, my office, now.

There are far worse places to live than Bedlington, try Guidepost, yes i have a nice view of the hills but there is a bus stop and about a million OAP's and on this TV show, the crazy people had a choice to live Bedlington/Cramilington or Florida, who in their right mind would stay in Cramlington if they had a chance to live in Florida?

CRAZY!

Bedlington is OK, it just needs a pool hall.

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
