Kirkdale set to benefit from media-led regeneration
Working Together - 3
Taking Kirkdale to a Global Audience
In 2010 the BBC did significant damage to the local economy when it cancelled the comedy ‘Last of the Summer Wine’. Whilst the show still tops the most-repeated lists on British TV, tourism revenue will never reach the dizzy heights of the late 1990’s. However a
deal has seen South African TV magnate Willem Coetzee, East-West Capital Management Inc., and The Elland Sanitary Wares Company, give financial backing to the launch of a new satellite channel to be based in the heart of Kirkdale. We’re pleased to announce we’ve helped secure the services of TV and gardening legend
for the channel. Fresh from a seven-year stint hosting the nation’s favourite afternoon chat show, TV’s very own Mr Yorkshire will commute three days a week from his Hampshire farmhouse, to broadcast live from Halifax’s forthcoming
Piece Hall Media Village
. Alan’s business acumen in distilling the essence of Yorkshire-ness and exploiting it for personal profit is hugely inspiring. Marketing such regional clichés to a gullible nation will be the subject of exploratory talks with the Disney Company this autumn. Watch this space.
Nurturing Home Grown Talent
Our young students and their hard-working teachers were taken to the nation’s hearts in 2013 with
Channel 4’s Educating Yorkshire
. We’re elevating the stars of this show to become official Kirkdale Educational Ambassadors to help us build strong foundations for future economic growth. With Kirkdale support, Musharaf, the undisputed star of the show, is set to launch his own range of headphones set to rival Beats Audio for sound quality and uber street cred.
‘Mushy P Cans’
will hit the shelves in October. Twenty percent of the profits from sales of Mushy’s designer audio accessory will be donated to the
Mr Bennet Charitable Foundation
. All funds raised will pay for inspirational skinny black trousers and hair gel for all male teachers, throughout Kirkdale and beyond.
Promoting Kirkdale at a regional, national and global level has been identified by US consultancy ‘Blue-Sky Regeneration’, as critical to sustained economic growth. Francis Strong, CEO of ‘BS Regeneration’, unveils a game-changing approach to ensure Kirkdale becomes Europe’s investment hub of choice
