   Inside Out - East: Monday September 26, 2005

Scooter Boys

Scooter boys are back in town - men and motors

The latest in boy racing isn't cars - it's scooters.

Every Wednesday night they meet in their droves on an industrial estate in Dunstable.

But are they a menace or just enjoying an innocent passion?

Inside Out's David Whiteley joins them for the night.

There are stunts that beggar belief, a fight, and plenty of noise.

Yet seemingly tolerated by local residents, the lads believe they're doing nothing wrong - and aren't causing a nuisance on the roads.

Suffolk Musical Mystery

Keith Skues
Spreading a little happiness - in search of Clifford Grey

You've probably never heard of Clifford Grey.

But you will have heard of his songs.

The man who wrote classics such as "Spread a Little Happiness, "If You Were The Only Girl" and several thousand more, was buried unknown even to his family, in Ipswich.

Now two local men have uncovered his story.

They've transformed his plain grave into a memorial fit for a musical genius.

And with the help of BBC radio broadcaster and music lover Keith Skues, they've brought his family from America to see his final resting place.

Gangland Gospel

Prayer session
Tough talk and gentle prayers - from gospel to gangland

There is an extraordinary group of men who meet to pray every week in Essex.

They call themselves Tough Talk.

All have been bad … murderers, thugs, thieves … but all had a remarkable moment when suddenly, God called them.

Tough Talk see it as their calling to spread the gospel to gangland.

Preaching in prisons and on the streets, they're taking their message not to the leafy suburbs, but to the criminal world.
