Southside Radio are planning a Guinness Book of Records attempt for the number of live interviews broadcast from Saltburn Cliff Lift on Friday 1st July 2011.
The record breaking event is that, Alex Lewczuk (the DJ from Southside Radio) will conduct interviews while riding up and down in the Cliff Lift throughout the day. He is allowed five minutes every hour for a toilet break and an additional 10 minutes for lunch. Representatives from the Guinness Book of Records will be in attendance and we understand that it will also get significant media – including TV – coverage.
Graeme Harper is coming to the area to oversee the event. Graeme is a top TV Producer from both the BBC and ITV. He has worked on Dr Who, Heartbeat, Robin Hood to name just a few programmes. He is just finishing working on Coronation Street and is now interested in the GBR event in Saltburn. Graeme is looking at Saltburn for future locations for filming new productions so this will be a great promotion for the area.
