BBC North West is the BBC English Region covering
Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Cheshire, Todmorden, the Ribble Valley in North Yorkshire, the Isle of Man, the north-western portion of Derbyshireand southern Cumbria.
Many people who live on the
Deesideof Walesand Flintshirewatch BBC North West as their preferred option. Some northern villages of Shropshireand Staffordshirecutting into Stoke On Trent, Biddulphand Newcastle Under Lymereceive programming from BBC North West.
In the early 1990s the Caldbeck transmitter was transferred to programming from the BBC North East region prompting a name change for all BBC regional broadcasting in the North to BBC North. There is little support for this area of North/West and Mid
Cumbria(along with Haltwistle in Northumberland) to resume services from Manchesteras part of the North West Englandregion, as some viewers as far north as the Anglo-Scottish borderhave little interest in what is happening in Cheshireand Derbyshire.
BBC North West's television service includes the daily regional news programme "
BBC North West Tonight", shorter "North West Today" bulletins on weekdays, the weekly magazine programme "Inside Out" and the weekly " Politics Show" opt-out.
The region is the controlling centre for
BBC Radio Lancashire, BBC Radio Manchesterand BBC Radio Merseyside, and the local editions of the BBC's "Where I Live" websites.
The regional headquarters and television centre is at
New Broadcasting Housein Oxford Road, Manchester.
