BBC Midlands: Toyah Signs CRB Petition

July 16th, 2013

bbcmid13aToyah has lent her support to CRB Midlands – The Campaign for Regional Broadcasting Midlands – Promoting the Midlands as a place to make TV, radio and film!

They say: “As a publicly funded organisation the BBC is obligated to reflect the importance of our region. The Midlands needs the support of the BBC but it should also be recognised that the BBC needs the support of the 10 million people who live in this region.”

Toyah said: “Birmingham has incredible talent and culture. We need the BBC to be able to express this to the world. As a city Birmingham is the friendliest place I know and it deserves to be a media centre of excellence.”
