Woolly and Tig, Balamory, Me Too, Bits and Bobs and now "keetee moooregg."

And only one scouser, and not a single northerner! What's going on?!

children's programmes are made in Glasgow for the same reason natural history ones are made in Bristol - it's just where the department is based.

The little girl who talks about Autumn on ceebeebies. What an accent that is!

"An me mum ses, Steeveh"! Love it. Is that Yorkshire or Lanc/Manc?

If Keith Fitt says 'pearl verlting' then Justin's obviously fallen into the trap all Southerners do of hideously mashing up Newcastle, Sunderland, Middlesborough and Northumbrian accents and calling it Geordie.

A broad Geordie would say 'voll-nn' complete with glottal stop.

Geordie would be 'porl voll-nn', no? At least I think that's how my friend says it.
