Sport - GUY PHILLIPS reporting. Pompey lose 0-4 to Wimbledon in 4th round of FA Cup. ALAN BALL, Manager says They were poor on the day. Pompey’s MICK QUINN released from 21 day jail sentence for driving whilst disqualified, after serving 14 days. Southampton beats Coventry City 2-0. Bournemouth draw with Blackpool 1-1. In darts, Gosport’s JED HARROP goes to Oldham to face world champion, JOHN LOWE in the 1st round of the Dry Blackthorne Masters Tournament. He gets beaten. Is interviewed prior to this. TRACK 4- CLIFF SENTENCE, proprietor of a Lymington vinyard, is interviewed about the scope of his operation. Makes white wine only and can produce 16,000 bottles in a good harvest. Cannot compete pricewise with Continent because of small scale production. Aims for quality rather than quantity. British licencing hours restrict his ability to serve visitors with wine in the afternoon. Sound of popping cork. Music. TRACK 5- ALISON HOLT reports on an unbelievable top level Whitehall investigation into trading by the Mary Rose Trust. Apparently they have been selling German marzipan cakes to visitors. ARTHUR ROGERS, spokesman for the Trust, explains that the marzipan is deliberately German for authenticity. That’s what it would have been in the Middle Ages, but Whitehall insists that the Trust is thereby undermining the British marzipan industry! Visitors eating German marzipan are getting much closer to Henry the 8th but MATT HOPPER comments Who would want to get too close to Henry with all that beheading. The marzipan might be hard to swallow! Aretha Franklin and George Michael sing I knew you were Waiting, this week’s Network No 1. [Box 9]
