Looks like Ian Lucas has stirred up Channel 4 to respond to his assertion that there was a South Wales bias in a proposal for a new HQ. They have come back to him via Twitter to meet up with the Wrexham Team as Wrexham nor any other place is either in or out of consideration.
Hope Ian’s initial accusation will not damage the view of Channel 4 towards Wrexham if a proper discussion takes place. Not sure who Wrexham would put forward as ‘Team Wrexham’.
As a location comparing Wrexham with Chester and Cardiff what has Wrexham goit that could make it a more attractive and commercial proposition.
Everything goes to South Wales. This will go to South Wales.
Not quite everything Chris, no decent roads or train links go from Wrexham to South Wales!!
Having had to do a run down to Crickhowell recently, I was genuinely amazed that the road (A483 between Chirk and Builth Wells) was one of the main links between North and South Wales. The alternative A49 being arguably worse.
BBC Wales and S4C have a long established presence in the Cardiff area and consequently, there’s a large existing pool of broadcast and production facilities, companies and talent, long ensconced there.
Salford is also in with a very good chance for all of the reasons that make Cardiff so attractive.
Ch4 aren’t coming to North Wales, the business case doesn’t in any way stack up.
There will be a strong anti-South Wales political movement growing up here in the North, if they don’t start sharing the wealth more.
