I was watching this programme whilst working out on the Cross Trainer at the gym. Judith Keppel, the woman who won £1,000,000 on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and a regular member of the Eggheads team, was asked the following question:
“What is the river that separates North Shields and South Shields?”
She did eventually get the right answer but admitted that she was not sure she knew where these two towns were.
Sunny South Shields is at the mouth of the River Tyne despite being featured on BBC television as the end point of the Great North Run. We obviously all need to do our bit to raise the profile of our towns.
