Bradford, city of film

Congratulations to Bradford for being named as the first Unesco City of Film. It's been a while coming (the bidding started back when I was writing for Yorkshire Insider regularly, if I remember right), and it might be hard to entirely grasp the logic of it, but good for them.

The city's proud Telegraph & Argus has a solid write-up (with some hilariously fruitbat comments), and the same paper's David Barnett bigs it up further in a Guardian blog.

I was going to link to the wonderful 'Every sperm is sacred' section of Monty Python's the Meaning of Life here, which I always thought was filmed in Bradford, but a bit of research finds that it was actually mostly filmed over in Colne...
