There was a lot of excitement today in Hungerford when BBC Radio Berkshire drove into town.  They set up their radio car, satellite communication car and stall outside Hungerford Town Hall where a crowd gathered to find out what was going on.  I rushed out of Hungerford Arcade and soon found BBC researchers Suzanne Courtney and Gavin Fischer who told me that they were here today and on Monday of next week to gather as much information about Hungerford as possible.  They are particularly interested in the antiques aspect of the town as this is what Hungerford is famous for and this will be the focus of the Mike Reid Show which is going out live on BBC Radio Berkshire on Thursday, 19th September between 1.00 p.m. and 4.00 p.m.  Nick Johnson, the BBC's sound and communications engineer, will set up his equipment and broadcast the show live from inside Hungerford Arcade.

On Thursday, 12th September, BBC Radio Berkshire will be back in Hungerford between 7.00 am.and 10.00 a.m. to interview people in the town to find out what their opinions are and what matters to them.

Where was Gavin Fischer when the photographs were being taken?...... shopping in Hungerford Arcade!!!
