Swanage Steam Railway

Neil's Sunday evening programme is a mix of reviews and previews from the world of arts and culture, mixed with a selection of music that will leave you wanting more.

This week Neil visits the Swanage railway, climbing on board a steam locomotive and gets to pull the levers in the signal box.
Folk singer Sandi Thom talks about her new album Merchant and Thieves.

Reporter Zoe Kleinman finds out why it has taken 400 years to resurrect the Lyme Regis beer festival.

And in the Sunday poetry series, Chris Carnegy takes a sideways look at one of the week’s lighter stories.

In the film review, Lena Samuels watches The Hangover, Hampshire county bowler Steve Whitehead keeps us up to date with the week’s bowls club news and this week’s A-Z playlist theme is ‘charity’.

For those on the roads across the south of England, there is travel news as it happens. And a smile is promised as the weekend draws to a close.

BBC Radio Solent offers a choice of listening on a Sunday evening, with Neil on 96.1 and 103.8FM and on the BBC iPlayer, and The Paul Miller Soul Show on digital radio and the BBC iPlayer.
