  • Description

    ITV Tyne-Tees news bulletin of 12th September, 1991, followed by Channel Four News excerpt from the following day. During the evening of the 12th, some out of control youths had firebombed a pub and some derelict houses in the western district of Newcastle upon Tyne. Tyne-Tees gives brief reportage, whilst the Channel Four contribution contains some analysis. Look out for a youthful Jon Snow as well as some 1980s gigantic glasses.
