OCEAN SOUND THIS WEEK NO. 43 Programme 43 of a weekly news and sports review called Ocean Sound This Week, broadcast by independent radio station Ocean Sound on 16 August 1987. Presented by MATT HOPPER. TRACK 1- JANE HILL reports on Ocean Sound’s Give a Child a Chance appeal which will enable 15 year old MELANIE THOMAS, a victim of menangitis, to be home for Christmas with her parents. MINTER THOMAS, the girl’s father, says that the 6,000 pounds raised by the appeal will enable him to build a 15ft extension to the house fitted out to enable Melanie to lead as normal a life as possible. Stevie Wonder sings For Once in My Life. JEAN PAUL HANSFORD goes out with Bembridge, Isle of Wight fire crew to answer a call to a mock road accident involving 2 cars, one on fire. Bembridge Station Officer, MARK JACOBS, describes the incident. Leading Fireman, BRIAN HARRISON, operating the foam pump, says that real accidents are sometimes much worse and advises motorists from the mainland that Isle of Wight roads are not designed for speed and to drive carefully. From 1971 CCS sings Tap turns on the Water. GUY HORNSBY interviews DAVID MARTIN, the new MP for Portsmouth South on his impressions of the House of Commons. MARTIN says: impressive. It can be rowdy sometimes, particularly during Prime Minister’s Question Time. The conventional forms of address between members help to preserve dignity. On the matter of following the Party Line, he voted against the MPs 22 percent pay increase although it was passed by the House. He will only be taking the percentage increase awarded to pensioners as a matter of principle. Howard Jones sings No one is to Blame. TRACK 2- Review of the week’s news and sport. News - KAREN WOODS reporting. LEONARD ELWELL, an 89 year old man, is beaten to death in the front room of his house in Sussex Road, Portsmouth. Detective Chief Superintendent ALAN WHEELER says: So far, little is known about the murdered man. ZELDA BLAKEY reports on Accidental Death verdict passed at the inquest into the deaths of 3 sisters who perished in a blaze at their Eastleigh home. Their mother, ANNETTE BLACKMAN, jumped to safety. BRIAN ATKINS, General Manager of Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth, commenting on closure of 5 wards due to nursing shortage, says that they are trying to maintain standards. GUY PHILLIPS interviews PAUL GOODWIN, a Warsash Antiques Dealer, who feels that his career has been shot to ribbons. He sold for next to nothing, an oil painting that might turn out to be a Constable worth millions. Lucky purchaser was local chip shop propreitor, MALCOLM LOVITT. Sport - CHRIS SCUDDER reporting. Pompey football team back in the First Division after 28 years, makes a bad start to the season, losing to Oxford United 2-4. Skipper KENNY SWAIN admits: Pompey threw it away and made silly defensive mistakes. Saints draw with Manchester United 2-2. Hampshire cricket team draw with Lancashire in County Championship. Chief Executive, TONY BAKER, strongly denies rumour that Pakistani leg spinnter, Abdul Qadir, will join Hampshire. In the Fastnet sailing race of the Admiral’s Cup Ireland’s Irish Independent comes first but overall the honours go to New Zealand for the first time ever. EDDIE OWEN, skipper of Britain’s Indulgence says that they blew their chances in the fourth event off Christchurch Bay by a wrong sail choice. TRACK 3- BRIAN COOK interviews Lt Cdr PETER VAIL, in charge of this year’s Portsmouth Navy Days. Asked what’s new this year VAIL mentions the Pussers Rum Roadshow singing sea shanties. BARRY FIELD, the Isle of Wight’s new MP is interviewed to find out what it’s like on the first day at school. As a new MP he is not easily recognised by police on the gate. There is the problem of registering for a desk and finding your way around the vast building. Music - It’s the Muppet Show!. GUY PHILLIPS interviews PAUL GOODWIN, a Warsash antiques dealer who sold an oil painting for next to nothing to a local chip shop owner. The painting is now believed to be by Constable. [See previous report about on BAND 2.] Michael Jackson sings his latest I just can’t stop loving You, this week’s Network No 1. [Box 9]
