Levitation of Swansea's Palace Theatre


 I filmed the attempted Levitation of Swansea's iconic Palace Theatre yesterday.



Originally built in 1888 as a traditional music hall,
the building's original name was the 'Pavilion'. During its lifetime,
the building has been used as a bingo hall as well as a gay nightclub.


The Grade II Listed building is one of just two purpose-built music halls left standing in the whole of the UK.[2]


In the early years of the 20th century stars like Charlie Chaplin, Lilly Langtry, Marie Lloyd and Dan Leno filled the venue.


Sir Anthony Hopkins made his first professional stage appearance there in 1960 with Swansea Little Theatre's production of 'Have A Cigarette'.[3]


Also in the early 1960s, Morecambe and Wise were booked. Ken Dodd was the last stand-up comedian to appear there before it became nightclub in the 1970s.


It was also the first place in Wales to show a silent picture and remained undamaged by the blitz that destroyed much of Swansea city centre during the Second World War.

Globalization and the Media- Tories and the BBC






If you ever needed evidence that BBC has bias towards the Tories, check this out


A number of high-profile BBC journalists have made the leap into
Conservative politics, including Craig Oliver, David Cameron’s
ex-director of communications, who was a former editor of the News at
Ten, and Thea Rogers, a BBC producer for the political editor, who
became George Osborne’s chief of staff.

Theresa May just
persuaded a BBC journalist for 23 years to switch from BBC to take her
top job in No 10 communications. Robbie Gibb, who heads the BBC’s
operations at Westminster now works for May.
