Max Bygraves and Bournemouth Air Festival

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.

In an extended programme this week, there’s another chance to hear the late Max Bygraves in conversation with Richard Cartridge from 2002.

Also, as the Bournemouth Air Festival draws to a close, Tristan Pascoe reports from the sea front. Emily Hudson visits Bournemouth Airport where the Red Arrows were based and Neil gets to steer the Type 42 destroyer HMS York.

And away from the air show, Neil hears from the organisers of the Great Dorset Steam Fair as the annual festival closes for another year.

Hampshire county bowls player Steve Whitehead keeps us up to date with the world of bowls and Lena Samuels reviews another DVD.

Chris Carnegy ponders a merger of two great Dorset events for his weekly poem and for those who like thinking laterally, the A- Z Playlist theme is ‘flying’.

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.
Neil is on AM, 103.8 FM and online, The Paul Miller Soul Show is on digital radio and online and there is full match commentary of Southampton against Manchester United on 96.1FM.
