Bamburgh is a village and civil parish on the coast of Northumberland, England. It had a population of 454 in 2001; the village is notable for the nearby Bamburgh Castle, a castle, the seat of the former Kings of Northumbria, for its association with the Victorian era heroine Grace Darling, buried there. The extensive beach by the village was awarded the Blue Flag rural beach award in 2005; the Bamburgh Dunes, a Site of Special Scientific Interest, stand behind the beach. Bamburgh is popular with holidaymakers and is within the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; the site now occupied by Bamburgh Castle was home to a fort of the indigenous Celtic Britons known as Din Guarie and may have been the capital of the kingdom of Bernicia, the realm of the Gododdin people, from the realm's foundation in c. 420 until 547, the year of the first written reference to the castle. In that year the citadel was captured by the Anglo-Saxon ruler Ida of Bernicia and became Ida's seat. Late medieval British author Thomas Malory identified Bamburgh Castle with Joyous Gard, the mythical castle home of Sir Lancelot in Arthurian legend.

Bamburgh is featured in the open world video game series Forza Horizon 4, released in October 2018. According to Bede, St Aidan built a wooden church outside the castle wall in AD 635, he died here in AD 652. A wooden beam preserved inside the church is traditionally said to be the one on which he rested as he died; the present church dates from the late 12th century, though some pre-conquest stonework survives in the north aisle. The chancel, said to be the second longest in the country, was added in 1230. S. Hicks, depicting northern saints of the 7th and 8th centuries. There is an effigy of local heroine Grace Darling in the North Aisle; this formed part of the original Monument to Grace Darling but was removed due to weathering of the stonework. Her memorial is sited in the churchyard in such a position. An electoral ward of the same name exists; this ward includes Belford and stretches south to Ellingham with a total population taken at the 2011 census of 4,846. In literature, Bamburgh Castle, under its Saxon name Bebbanburg, is the home of Uhtred, the main character in Bernard Cornwell's The Saxon Stories.

It was extensively modernised in 1975 and is now monitored from the Trinity House Operations and Planning Centre in Harwich. Routine maintenance is carried out by a local attendant, it is the most northerly land-based lighthouse in England. When built, the lamp was mounted on a skeletal steel tower which stood alongside the white building which housed an acetylene plant to power the lamp, it was a sector light with a group occulting characteristic. During electrification in 1975 the tower was removed, the lantern was placed instead on top of the acetylene building. Diesel generators were installed in the building.

Jordan Hill Roman Temple

Jordan Hill Roman Temple is a Romano-Celtic temple and Roman ruin situated on Jordan Hill above Bowleaze Cove in the eastern suburbs of Weymouth in Dorset, England. Original amateur excavations on the site in 1843, by J. Medhurst, were followed by a series of excavations in the 20th century suggesting that the site was in operation between c. AD 69–79 to the late 4th century. In the 20th century the site became the property of the Ministry of Works and is in the guardianship of English Heritage; this is a Romano-British type temple, with a square-plan building situated within a courtyard or precinct. The floorplan of the temple measured 6.8 square metres. The surrounding precinct measured 84 square metres and contained numerous deposits of animal bones and coins; the site may have served as a late 4th-century signal station.

KHII-TV, virtual channel 9, is a MyNetworkTV-affiliated television station licensed to Honolulu, United States. The station is owned by Nexstar Media Group, as part of a duopoly with Fox affiliate KHON-TV; the two stations share studios at the Haiwaiki Tower on Piikoi and Waimanu Streets in downtown Honolulu. On cable, the station is available on Oceanic Spectrum and Hawaiian Telcom channel 5; as with other major television stations in Hawaii, KHII operates satellite stations across the Hawaiian Islands to rebroadcast the station's programming outside of metropolitan Honolulu. The stations served as KGMB satellite stations until the 2009 KGMB/KFVE facility swap, which resulted in both stations becoming satellites of KFVE; the 2019 purchase by Nexstar retained these stations as KHII satellites. Notes: 1. KGMD-TV used the call sign KHBC-TV from 1955 to 1965 and was KPUA-TV from 1965 to 1976. 2. KGMV used the calls KMAU-TV from its 1955 sign-on to 1976. KHII signed on the air on February 7, 1988 as KFVE, broadcasting on channel 5, as the final VHF station in the market.

KFVE focused on low-budget programming such as Hawaii Five-O repeats. Under the moniker "Hawaii is Watching us Grow", it focused on movies and syndicated fare, by 1990 acquired programs from KMGT before its format switch to religious programming; as a small-time independent station, it had to rely on low-budget programming and Japanese television dramas through much of its early existence. That all changed in 1993 when another local station, KHNL, took over management of KFVE through a local marketing agreement. KFVE merged its operations into KHNL's facility, it was the first such local market sharing organization in the country. After KHNL took over oversight of the station in the mid-1990s, coverage of University of Hawaii athletics moved over to KFVE, which rebranded as "The Home Team". On January 16, 1995, KFVE became a charter affiliate of UPN under the brand name "K-5 UPN Hawaii". On December 28, 1998, the station began carrying programming from The WB as a secondary affiliation; the WB was carried throughout Hawaii on KWHE.

KFVE was acquired outright by Raycom Media on December 31, 1999. Raycom had purchased KHNL and the LMA with KFVE from Belo Corporation two months earlier, but acquired KFVE's license as well after the FCC began permitting duopolies between television stations. On September 2, 2002, KFVE became a primary WB affiliate; the station rebranded itself as "K-5, The Home Team: Hawaii's WB", with the "Hawaii's WB" branding being used during promotional advertisements for WB programming. In the Honolulu market, UPN programming moved to KHON-TV and KGMB, which both carried secondary affiliations with the network from September 2002 to October 2004. On March 7, 2006, Raycom Media announced that KFVE would affiliate with MyNetworkTV as part of a group deal involving many of Raycom-owned affiliates of The WB and UPN. KFVE joined MyNetworkTV on September 5, 2006 and did not air The WB's final two weeks of prime-time programming. On January 15, 2009, DirecTV transferred KFVE from analog to its digital and high definition signals due to the analog shutdown.

The HD feed of KFVE was pulled off DirecTV on January 16 for unknown reasons. A standard definition digital feed of the station was restored on the satellite provider on January 17. On February 29, 2012, KFVE's HD feed was restored on DirecTV. On August 18, 2009, Raycom Media announced that it would enter into a shared services agreement with MCG Capital Corporation, in which the operations of that station, KFVE and KHNL would be combined; the SSA moved KFVE and its programming from PSIP channel 5 to channel 9 under MCG ownership, while KGMB moved from 9 to 5 and fell under Raycom's ownership. The FCC only recognizes ownership of facility IDs and not station call signs or intellectual property, allowing MCG Capital to gain ownership of KFVE and Raycom ownership of KGMB during the swap; the overall viewership of KFVE, while on channel 5, fell outside the criteria that would have otherwise barred a duopoly between KHNL and KGMB if facility IDs were traded as well. The channel swap took effect with the SSA on October 26, 2009, as KFVE moved from 5 to 9 and changed its on-air branding from "K-5" to "KFVE."

As a result, KFVE now operates under KGMB's license. The two stations swapped outer-island satellites. On November 20, 2013, MCG Capital filed to sell KFVE and its satellites to American Spirit Media, a company owned by Thomas B. Henson and a shared services duopoly partner with Raycom in several other markets, for $22 million. On June 25, 2018, Atlanta-based Gray Television announced it had reached an agreement with Raycom to merge their respective broadcasting assets under the former's corporate umbrella in a cash-and-stock merger transaction value
