OCEAN SOUND THIS WEEK NO. 20 Programme 20 of a weekly news and sports review called Ocean Sound This Week, broadcast by independent radio station Ocean Sound on 6 March 1987. Presented by MATT HOPPER. TRACK 1- JEAN-PAUL HANSFORD interviews STEVEN ROSS, MP, about the forthcoming Isle of Wight Arts Festival. ROSS says Just what the doctor ordered. Arts Festival Director, KEVIN WEST, also interviewed says he is still slightly surprised at the interest being shown. ADAM HARDING interviews 20 year old WENDY BEATTIE, threatened but not actually attacked by a masked man armed with a knife as she was getting ready to go home from a Portsmouth bowling alley where she was employed. Man got away with 3,000 pounds in cash. Detective Inspector NICK IMBER, leading the hunt, says he believes the man secreted himself on premises and was lying in wait. BEATTIE says she cannot sleep for recurrent nightmares. TRACK 2- NICK CARTER interviews PAM SILVESTER, reporter with local paper, Hayling Islander, as to why the Island has not grown in population at the same rate as Portsmouth. She believes it is because wealthy local businessmen bought up large parcels of land on the Island in the 20s and did not encourage development. Points out that the Island has had some well known residents such as Nevil Shute, Lawrence Olivier’s family and Jessie Matthews, who always stayed at the Royal Hotel when playing in Portsmouth. Duke of Windsor played golf on Island’s course. NICK HALL, Curator of Havant Museum, in reference to a gun punt on display at the museum, explains the rather special way of life of the wildfowler who would have used it. He would have to lie down flat in the punt and, with difficulty, use hands to propel boat in shallow water. The tap boat to alarm birds, take aim, fire! Range of punt 40 yards. Music - Eight Miles High sing The Birds, a hit of 1966. TRACK 3- CHRIS RIDER reviews the week’s news and sport. News - 42 year old NORMAN REDMAN, a referee in West Sussex, forced to resign after being accused of carrying Aids virus which he denies. ADAM HARDING reports on GRAHAM REVIE of Freemantle, Southampton, who might have to return to Belgium to face charges of being implicated in the Heysel Stadium disaster. KAREN WOODS reports on special fund being raised to defend MARION ARNOLD, a Fareham woman accused of trying to smuggle 3 million pounds worth of heroin out of Egypt in a wooden elephant. 7 million pounds worth of improved facilities in Southampton. Conservatives gain Carisbroke West in by-election for IOW County Council. A surprise for MARK AND MARY SUTER who bought a 150 year old cottage in Freshwater and found that the deeds banned drinking and gambling on the premises! SPORT - GUY PHILLIPS reporting. Pompey maintain 6 point lead in 2nd Division with a goal-less draw against Derby County. Bournemouth beat Middlesborough 3-1 giving a 6 point lead and making them top of 3rd Division. Manager, HARRY REDNAP, comments. In Southern League, Fareham Town wins for the first time after 13 attempts, beating Dudley Town 2-0. Coach, ROGER BADELY, speaks. In swimming, 17 year old GRANT ROBINS is selected to represent Britain in May Happel ? Games in Israel. In basketball, Portsmouth coast through 2 easy victories against Heml and Watford in the semi-final championship play-offs at Wembley. TRACK 4- LORD ROMSEY talks to MARK FLANAGAN in the library at Broadlands, his ancestral home, now open to the public, which makes it difficult for LORD ROMSEY to find a quiet place to work. Lord Louis Mountbatten would have approved of public opening. Broadlands very expensive to run. Is the gap between Southampton and Romsey threatened? Not by his planning applications. Lord Romsey’s other interests - director of several commercial radio stations, including Ocean Sound. TRACK 5- BRIAN COOK reports on the arrival of Lord Nelson at Southampton. No, not the Admiral’s ghost but the Jubilee Sailing Trust’s new training ship of that name. Specifically designed for the physically handicapped, this 2 masted, square rigged barque offers 10 day or week-end cruises to the age range 16 to 60. Ben E King sings Stand by Me, this week’s Network No 1. Bognor antiques dealer, BRIAN HEIGHT, was fairly bowled over when a tall Texan pulled up outside his shop, made an offer for the whole of the stock, closed the deal and collected, all in one day!
