Out In The Radio Car 27-31 October 2008

First up this week I was sent to a micro brewery to talk about the Norwich Beer Festival. Mark Riches had left his job at Lotus to set up Beeston Brewery. A bold step but he's doing well and hoping for honours at this years Fest. Then I went on to Sculthorpe Mill Hotel on the River Wensum just outside Fakenham. Lovely location but on a cold frosty morning these two guys, Owen Smith and Ben Norman were about to 'push off' in the canoe to go all the way downriver to Great Yarmouth. They hoped to be there by Friday. Did they make it or did frostbite snap at them?
Tuesday and it's off to Pensthorpe to talk to co-owner Deb Jordan about Autumn Watch on the BBC. She and husband Bill are off to Brownsea Island to see for themselves. We can look forward to a return of Spring Watch to Pensthorpe next year.
Wednesday finds me at Dunstan Hall where forty Triumph dealers gather to ride on the new Street Triple R just launched. Paul Barkshire of Lings of Lowestoft showed me the bike but sorry, forgot to take a photo for you. Then it was off to Banham Zoo where two Siberian Tiger cubs were born. We didn't get to see the cubs (inside) but look at the pic. That's just an image on the right but in the enclosure we were closely watched by 'dad'.
Thursday morning and freezing again. A group of protestors meet me to explain why they're objecting to the increased size of a proposed church on this site of the former David Rice hospital. Great view across the Wensum valley. (I wonder of Mondays canoeists have gone past yet?
Friday and I'm at Blakeney talking to Francis Winch at her home overlooking the bay. This is her dolls house constructed by a Birmingham model maker when she received a legacy from her Aunt Ruth. This coming weekend it's open to the public to raise money for charity. You'll find her at Kettle Hill just up the lane from the Village Hall in Blakeney.
