Resort to feature in new BBC series

SOME Morecambrians long for the good old days of the town’s distant past.

Now they will get their wish, thanks to a TV programme.

The next series of BBC show Turn Back Time – where families relive periods of history – will be filmed entirely in Morecambe.

The five-part series of one-hour programmes, scheduled to be shown in June 2012, will all come from three houses side-by-side in a residential street in the West End.

Three families from across Britain will live in the houses and be fast forwarded through history all the way from the class-ridden Edwardian era to the 1970s heyday of the Bay City Rollers.

See The Visitor (13-12-11) for full story.
