    Russian & Welsh, with undertones of Irish augmented by Titanic flutes.

    I suspect a translator would be required in Newcastle

    Watch The Man In The High Castle instead. It imagines that the allies lost the Second World War and America has been split up between the Nazis and the Japanese. Based on a Philip K Dick book and produced by Ridley Scott. Very well done, I think.

    I'm a Geordie and I have absolutely no idea what he is saying. But it is very funny.

    I'm looking forward to watching that at some point, @cuteinpuce. I'm a big fan of PKD but I don't expect much of a match beyond the contextual premise.

    A wise approach.

    Funny thing is I watched Spike Island the other night on Film4 and found the broad Manc accents in that virtually impenetrable for the first 30 minutes, and I've lived and worked in the northwest for over 25 years.
