Presented by MATT HOPPER. TRACK 1- GUY PHILLIPS interviews DAVID MARTIN, Portsmouth South’s New Member of Parliament and in with a 200 majority. Martin’s special interests are housing and education. He will not be an absent landlord. He is bitter about the way personalities were brought into the General Election campaign. ADAM HARDING interviews WPC CAROL ORMISTER who is trying to establish a bond of friendship between herself and the 5 year old girl who was brutally raped [see previous report on Ocean Sound This Week 21 June 1987 TRACK 3]. Aim is to find identity of attacker. Anatomically correct dolls are used. Child is being remarkably brave. As representative of Britain’s 1.3 million Methodists gather for a conference at Portsmouth Guildhall, GUY HORNSBY interviews the Rev Dr Gordon Barratt, a former President of the Methodist Conference and asks him about the number of highly controversial items which appear on the conference agenda. BARRATT says that race relations is likely to be the most heated debate. Talks about the election for the first time at this year’s conference of a woman Bishop - the Rev Kathleen Richardson. Ten CC sing The Dean and I. BRIAN COOK reports on Ocean Sound’s Country Fair at Beaulieu. Interviews ANDY JACKMAN, a shepherd, who trains his dogs to herd ducks because they need smaller areas and are popular with children. TRACK 2- The week’s review of news and sport. News - KAREN WOODS reporting. Interview with WPC CAROL ORMISTER re child rape victim. [See previous report above on TRACK 1]. Interview with Saints Manager, CHRIS NICHOLL who, asked about departure for Derby of international goalkeeper, PETER SHILTON, denies being kept in the dark. Interview with licenced Victuallers Association spokesman, DAVID LARWOOD, who says that Government announcement that pubs will be permitted to open for 12 hours a day will not mean that all publicans will take advantage of the relaxation in regulations. It is a matter of profitability. Interview with Testwood Garages Branch Manager, PAUL MARSH, about spate of thefts of Volkswagen car badges by Beastie Boy fans. His garage has had 50 badges stolen but it makes goods business replacing them. Sport - GUY PHILLIPS reporting. Saints Manager, CHRIS NICHOLL says sorry to see PETER SHILTON leave the Dell for Derby. Denies that he did not know or that large fee was involved. Big news in the coming season’s 1st Division fixtures is that Pompey and Saints are drawn to play against each other at Fratton Park in August. Saints Assistant Manager, TONY BARTON, says that he is surprised that the two clubs have been pitched together so early in the season. Gosport’s ROGER BLACK will run in the 400m at Prague. Hampshire secure first County Championship victory beating Middlesex with batsman CHRIS SMITH scoring 132 not out. In their match against Dorst for the 2nd round of the NatWest Trophy Competition, SMITH scores 140 not out and Dorset are beaten by 200 runs. TRACK 3- GUY HORNSBY interviews FIONA RICHMOND who has had an extraordinary career to say the least! She says that she has to have a tough skin to survive and recalls the time when she rode naked on a horse down Great Windmill Street to publicise London’s Windmill Theatre. Thinks SAMANTHA FOX, the current sex symbol, is not in the same class as the late Marilyn Monroe but is probably right for our times. Mentions her autobiography Tell Tale Tits. Dusty Springfield sings I close my eyes and count to Ten. GUY HORNSBY discusses alcoholism with expert Dr CLIVE GRAYMOR who says that there are 200 alchoholics to every drug addict. We should be reminded that alcohol itself is, in fact, a drug and is potentially dangerous. In moderation, it is acceptable as a relaxation but not as a crutch. ALISON JOHNS interviews DAVID RUDKIN, Director of Fishbourne Roman Palace Site, regarding recent discovery of remains of reception rooms facing the Southern half of the West wing of the palace. The Firm sing Star Trekking, this week’s Network No 1. [Box 9]
