Mersey Reporter will also have an online games
room and we will be starting the first 2 games next week with lots
more to be added over the next few months.
Our history section has been updated
already, so you can now get more information about the
region. Please no jokes about the Doomsday book error...
We know it has a typo on the date... it will be fixed with in the
next few weeks. Well you can't get perfection straight off, it
would not be British... The rest is 100%
From next Saturday you can get to play with
our taster version of our Virtual Tour of Merseyside. The full
tour will be added very soon. It has taken over 4 years
to complete and will take you around most of Merseyside, showing the
good and bad parts. The aim is to show what the region is really
like to our selves and to future visitors. The tour will be
updated once it finished regally, to keep it up-to-date. We
still have thousands of locations to program in to the site, but if
it goes to schedule, it will be finished for November.
TV... We will be adding more programs from
next week onwards, the first one will be played on Liverpool
Reporter over next week and then added to the program archive....
(who says internet radio can not have TV images as well...?)
Remember their is already one TV program online in the archive for you to
Install Real player to tune in.
If you find it hard to access any part
of the site over the next few days, please let us know.
It could be down to our testing. Thank you
to every one who emailed us last week about the Classic Car Photo
Page being down on the photograph link. Sadly that was due to
our updates. It has now been fixed.
Enjoy the new pages!

Over 25 VIP's were on hand, many of them Lord Mayors from all over the Britain to see this year’s performance of the areas representatives. The amateur talent contest is produced for the over 60s and is the biggest in Britain’s biggest.
Sponsors and organisers YOURS magazine told the Southport Reporter:-
"The sun came out for the stars and they performed tremendously. It was a hard competition to judge as all the competitors was fantastic."
This competition has really put Southport on the map for Talent Competitions and proved to be a good build up to
this years Search Far A Star National contest to be held later this year in Southport. More in our other report this week.
