No mention; You Say

THE BBC midday news today mentioned the Battle of the Atlantic Remembrance.

They showed a few vessels sinking after being torpedoed, plus a few words exchanged with some old seamen, who could have been anywhere but Liverpool. The only mention of the area was "Merseyside" (once).

I then turned to ITV News at 1.30pm expecting it to give a more balanced report, but no, just like the BBC, no mention from ITV of "Liverpool".

It was mentioned that Britain expected a million tons of foods on a weekly basis - which must have came through Liverpool.

What a pity they omitted to mention the Battle of the Atlantic was directed from a headquarters in a city building basement. As it was going to be the last tribute to those who perished, I feel both BBC and ITV let us down badly.
