Newsnight Review from Liverpool Fri 3 Oct 08

From BBC Newsnight website
Newsnight Review is in Liverpool this week. It has been the European Capital of Culture for nine months now. We want to know whether you think honours like this have a lasting impact on a city, its people and the wider region, or do the benefits disappear when the year is over? We want to know whether people in Glasgow think their Capital of Culture year benefitted the place in the long term, and whether people in Manchester think the Commonwealth Games did the same.

If you’re from Liverpool or you’ve been to the Capital of Culture this year, what has been your highlight so far? The robotic spider creeping through the city streets? The first Corbusier exhibition in over 20 years in the crypt at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral? McCartney’s summer concert at Anfield or the art work on display as part of the Liverpool Biennial? Or has nothing on the programme appealed to you, and if not, why not?

Tomorrow night we’ll hear what Holly Johnson, Ian Hart, Terence Davies, Miranda Sawyer and our audience members think of Liverpool 08 so far so send us your thoughts.
