325 Granada Reports
First viewed : Uncertain
I'm not sure when I first caught this but I think I would have chosen this over Nationwide as part of that Friday night schedule.
This was / is Granada's version of Yorkshire's Calendar or LWT's Today , a half-hour round-up of regional news and events, sometimes interesting , sometimes boring or faintly embarrassing. The only thing that made it stand out for me was that I absolutely hated one of the presenters and I think you can probably guess who that was.
At this point in time I didn't have a clue about the extracurricular musical activities of Tony Wilson ( as he then was ) ; he was just this super-aggravating smarmy git with an awful haircut and a voice and delivery that insinuated he was somehow above his colleagues.
I eventually learned to tolerate him and after the demise of Factory made him more vulnerable I grew to appreciate what he tried to do for the city and was sad when he passed away.
