The History of Out and About, by Irwyn Davies.

Irwyn DaviesThe haunting sounds of a Russian choir echoing around the hills of North Wales during the Llangollen International Festival in 1992 was an experience I felt I should share with listeners to Radio Redhill – so Out & About was born.

The programme seeks to highlight the interests, talents and creativity of people from all walks of life and provide something different for patients during their stay in hospital.

What do I mean by something different? Well, we have admired the bravery of the crew of the Shoreham Lifeboat, collapsed in mirth in the presence of impressionist Rory Bremner, witnessed the enthusiasm of BBC Antiques Roadshow expert David Battie, gained an insight into the world of documentary film making with the charming Joanna Lumley and have been inspired by the recollections of centenarian Dick Barron who, as a British Veteran of World War I, was awarded the Chevallier Legion D’Honeur by the French government.

A veteran of a different kind is the London to Brighton Veteran Car run when motor racing champion Nigel Mansell revealed how difficult it was to slow down in these ancient vehicles. His thoughts were confirmed by fellow driver Prince Michael of Kent.

As if to keep it in the family, His Royal Highness The Prince Edward came on to the programme during his visit to Richard Stilgoe’s Orpheus Centre in Godstone where the arts become a meaningful experience for disabled students.

Out & About is proud to have been the recipient of BT Awards in the Best Non-Music Programme category, in association with the Hospital Broadcasting Association.

How strange that it should have all started with that Russian choir!
