On the 45th Anniversary of Jack's Return Home – the Ted Lewis novel that inspired Get Carter – social historian, author and producer of ‘The Tube’ Chris Phipps explores how Tyneside has been portrayed on screen.
Mike Hodges' classic movie is still seen by audiences, controversially, as the defining film image of Newcastle. Media historian Chris Phipps traces how the city has been dramatised and portrayed on the big and small screen, from early movies such as On the Night of the Fire (1939), through the heist classic Payroll (1961) and later Our Friends in the North, up to the present day with Geordie Shore.
