Granadaland Conference

In May 2016 we held a one day conference at Manchester Metropolitan University to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the first transmission by Granada TV. The event was hosted by Gordon Burns with a keynote speech from Steve Morrison. Lord Bernstein’s two children – David Bernstein and Jane Wells – both attended along with 200 delegates, many of them former Granada employees. There were also sessions with Leslie Woodhead talking about documentaries, Johnnie Hamp in discussion with CP Lee about light entertainment, David Liddiment talking drama with Carolyn Reynolds and Sita Williams, and Sandy Ross on local programming with Don Jones and Cat Lewis. A brochure listing the day’s events is on this page.
