Watch Vital Pompey working with Meridian TV!

Researchers from Meridian picked up stories and threads that were posted on the site and got in touch with Rug about cooperating on a story around Cup Final tickets. Rug unfortunately is located out of the area and had to nominate eastneydave to be the face of VP. Filming took place last week and the story has now been edited to run tonight. Through Rug other VP members were contacted and their stories will also be told in this piece, anonymously where requested.

The Meridian reporter involved in the story is Elisa Mitchell who was awarded Regional Consumer Journalist of the Year in 2007. Elisa and her team have put in a great deal of effort on this subject and admit they have enough material for a half hour special. Elisa also carries her Pompey shirt with her everywhere as a prop.

There is no doubt that the slot will put the site in a very good light for the way we have tried to protect and advise fans on the subject of buying tickets. Some Pompey fans have often been critical and at times even cynical of the local television coverage of all things Pompey; I hope and believe this particular article may change that attitude.

Watch tonight at 6pm or if you do not receive the local Hampshire Meridian News for whatever reason it will be available on the itvlocal.com/meridian site soon after the programme is complete. We will have the link on the front page as soon as we can.

Well done Dave.. I saw it as it went out live and thought Elisa did a cracking job and you were as articulate and well thought out as always.... It's great to see the site working with the telly in this (or any way) but what impressed me most (other than Elisa) was the Blue banner that came up across your chest with your name and VITALl POMPEY across it..

Chix the shirt was actually Eilsa's prop. She wanted it as a backdrop. A lot of what was filmed ended up on the cutting room floor but it worked and that was the main point.

There is absolutely no danger of me getting a bell. Used to take a rattle with me in the 60's. Wembley wanted to ban Westwood I hear after the Semi.
