Newcastle on Film
Stormy Monday has the biggest budget for any British film this year. It's being shot in Newcastle - the first film made there since Get Carter in 1971. And it not only has a local story about a jazz club owner fighting off American gangsters, but writer/director, Mike Figgis , and star, Sting, both come from Newcastle.
David Roper reports from the film set.

The programme sets out to pursue not only individual allegations of injustice, sharp practice and the abuse of authority, but also wider issues as a result of which the lives of ordinary people may be damaged by the actions -or complacency - of others.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
