* The Creator/{{ESPN}} commercial [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ms_b_NH3P4 "Born Into It"]], where two blokes from Manchester--a [[BritishFootyTeams United fan and a City fan]]--describe how horrible their lives would be if they were born on the other side, even though they have more in common than they think.

It's less crowded than southern England, but not half as rich or full of TV bosses [[note]] Though thanks to a concerted effort by the BBC (and followed by other media organisations such as ITV) to relocate a large chunk of its resources to Salford and Manchester, this is beginning to change [[/note]]. The media sometimes portray a stereotypical place of urban deprivation, coal mines and men in flat caps. Expect stories about working-class struggle, unemployment, crime, alcoholism, and [[LastOfTheSummerWine old men having humorous adventures]]. There may well be [[Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus trouble at t'mill]]. The setting of many a KitchenSinkDrama.

**Ironically, Lena Headey, who plays Cersei Lannister, is actually from Yorkshire, and considers herself a "Northern girl". She doesn't use her original speaking voice to play the character (as for her son Joffrey, he's actually from Ireland, and has a heavy Irish accent in real life which is utterly impossible to detect in the sneering RP accent he affects for his performance).

* The Ninth Doctor's accent in ''Series/DoctorWho'' (since it is Creator/ChristopherEccleston's natural one). This despite him being an alien, which is explained thusly: "lots of planets have a North!"

* ''Series/PhoenixNights'' is set in Bolton and was filmed in Farnworth, Lancashire. Creator/PeterKay himself is from Bolton and his comedy routines often revolve around life Oop North.
** His latest TV comedy, ''Car Share'', is very vaguely set in and around Manchester. People recognising the streets and roads travelled by two people going to and from work have said it looks like one Hell of a commute.
