Here’s the full script of the Channel 4 video (visit this link to find out more about it), with all the hidden C4 titles highlighted. How many did you get right?
Hi Channel 4, news for your employees coming up north. Pour yourselves a regular-size cup of Yorkshire tea for [T4] a start, sit back, relax and watch the rest of this video.
Channel 4 staff have been leaving behind their friends in London as they get on the tube for the last leg of their trip on the Circle Line to Kings Cross, ready to visit one of Britain’s most historic towns and take over TV from Leeds.
The countdown is on until the new offices are open in the old Majestyk building but the word is a few drifters aren’t going to make that trip which would be a catastrophe.
Still, as we say around here there’s nowt so queer as folk.
With that in mind, I’ve decided to make this video to show off the virtues of Yorkshire using as many Channel 4 TV show titles as possible. So get your game face on and see if you can count them all but, you might want to go back to the start because you’ve already missed quite a few.
This is England at its finest, with amazing spaces such as the Yorkshire Dales and Yorkshire Moors on your doorstep. Take a coach trip into the countryside and breathe in the fresh air. You’ll feel ten years younger.
But it’s not just about country living, we have vibrant and exciting cities too in this northern utopia. You get the best of both worlds.
If you’ve ever hunted for an affordable home in London you’ll be surprised how much easier it is to get on the property ladder here in Yorkshire. For the same price as a cramped flat in Zone 4 in London, where you have to sleep four in a bed to be able to split the mortgage affordably, you could get a place like this up here.
For you rich London types, you don’t have to decide between coast vs country. As well as a home near Leeds, you might even be able to afford a place by the sea in one of the many beautiful Yorkshire resorts
spaced along the coast, such as Saltburn or Whitby.
It’s all about location, location, location and, let’s face it, if you live in Leeds and you’re in the media, you’re most likely to be in Chapel Allerton.
There’s a bustling town centre and loads of places to eat, whether it’s a big breakfast, a light lunch, or your Friday night dinner. Of course we call it Friday night tea round here but that’s a debate for a different day.
Oh yeah and if you find Sunday brunch on a menu I know that is cultural appropriation from you southerners and I’m sorry. No offence.
No matter what the papers say it’s not grim up north, it’s not the dark place you read about in dispatches. We’re humans, we’re not misfits, we’ve got feelings and that sort of stuff can really get a man down because those articles aren’t true.
But there’s loads of great talent around here who can help you with building the dream, So get their contact details in your little black books and check out the best bits of our area.
Visit our cutting-edge art galleries and museums. Try our bars and pubs in the day or after dark. There’s also the mass of restaurants that make Bradford British curry capital.
Don’t @ me Birmingham, you know I’m right.
You could take some great canal journeys. There’s also plenty of car boot sales because where there’s muck there’s brass. Aye [Brass Eye], and lots of other stuff too.
Whether you’re the toast of London or you were made in Chelsea don’t let the accident of your birth or career stop you from embracing the opportunities up north with glee.
And if you want anymore help with stuff to do with the kids around here you can check out my YouTube channel for the Bewildered Family Guide to Yorkshire
Now, that’s not a Channel 4 TV show title yet but we can work on that when you get settled in.
Sorry, that was shameless.
There were…52 hidden titles!
Now watch it back to hear them all in situ:
