1161 kHz AM in Wiltshire. In the early 1990s Brunel started networking programming to 2CR Radio (2CR FM) in Bournemouth and Radio 210 (2-Ten FM) in Reading (Reading, Berkshire), Berkshire. Each station had Classic Gold appended to the end of their names (e.g. Brunel Classic Gold, 210 Classic Gold). Local news and shows were combined with networked programmes in each of its areas. airdate 26 June 1999 area Bournemouth Poole and Christchurch format CHR (Contemporary hit radio) '''Fire Radio''' is a United Kingdom radio station based in Bournemouth, Dorset. The station was launched on 26 June 1999 by founding Directors James Bromley and David Harber as '''The NRG FM 107.6''', but changed name a year later following a dispute with French radio station NRJ (NRJ Radio). The station is now part of The Triple Broadcast Co Ltd. French broadcaster NRJ (NRJ Radio) challenged "The NRG" over the use of the name as the pronunciation was the same. radiotoday.co.uk In discussion with the station's solicitors (Stephens Innocent) the station management agreed that although there was a "chance" that the Bournemouth station could win the challenge - and even if not, they could go to Appeal and "almost certainly" win - the costs involved in challenging one of Europe's biggest radio brands would be too high for a small station on the South Coast (South Coast of England) of the UK. Despite the notion of 'borrowing station names', Managing Director David Harber renamed the station "The Fire" after a Chicago based station "WFYR" which had been 'off-air' for a number of years. The station changed name on Bonfire Night (Guy Fawkes Night), 2000. The station moved from the original studios in the Quadrant Shopping Centre, Bournemouth to purpose-built studios at the The Picture House on Holdenhurst Road in Bournemouth in June 2007. Haskell was previously a classmate of Fripp's at Queen Elizabeth's grammar school in Wimborne near Bournemouth, the pair having subsequently played together in local band the League of Gentlemen. After Haskell contributed vocals to the track "Cadence and Cascade" on ''In the Wake of Poseidon'', Fripp asked him to become an official member of King Crimson for the recording of ''Lizard''. Another supporting musician on ''In the Wake of Poseidon'', saxophonist flautist Mel Collins was also asked to become a full-time member of this line-up, as was drummer Andy McCulloch (Andrew McCulloch (drummer)). The group was then augmented with supporting players, including another ''In the Wake of Poseidon'' alumnus – the noted jazz pianist Keith Tippett – together with Yes (Yes (band)) vocalist Jon Anderson, and brass (Brass instrument) woodwind (Woodwind instrument) players (Musician) Robin Miller, Mark Charig, and Nick Evans (Nick Evans (trombonist)). death_date 6 April 1943 birth_place Bournemouth, Dorset death_place Sfax, Tunisia Life Born in Bournemouth, Dorset on 24 September 1903, Derek was the third of five sons, one of his younger brothers was Hugh Seagrim GC (George Cross), giving these two brothers the distinction of being the only siblings to receive the Victoria Cross and George Cross.

DATE OF BIRTH 24 September 1903 PLACE OF BIRTH Bournemouth, Dorset DATE OF DEATH 6 April 1943 South West Trains The South West (SW) division franchise was won by the Stagecoach Group and was operated as '''South West Trains''' (SWT). SWT did not inherit any standard 4 Cep units, but it did operate the seven 4 Bep units. However, in 1996, a shortage of trains led to SWT hiring two sets (nos. 1568 and 1589) on a short-term lease. These units were quickly followed by more, until by 1998, SWT had a fleet of 29 standard 4 Cep units. These were gradually overhauled, and were employed on a range of duties, including services to Portsmouth, Reading (Reading, Berkshire), Southampton, Bournemouth and Weymouth (Weymouth, Dorset). Additionally, units commonly worked services on the Lymington branch. *1505 - Converted to Route-learning Unit 930082 (British Rail Class 930) for use by Southern (Southern (train operating company)), including removal of end-gangways.

Background Hampshire had played at their Northlands Road (County Cricket Ground, Southampton) headquarters in Southampton since 1885, as well as using Dean Park (Dean Park Cricket Ground) in Bournemouth, the United Services Recreation Ground in Portsmouth and May's Bounty in Basingstoke as regular outground venues. Northlands Road was a cramped location, surrounded by residential buildings which meant expanding the ground was largely impossible. Hampshire also wanted to encourage international cricket to the county, which would not have been possible with Northlands Road. Talk of a move from Newlands Road had begun as early as 1987, with Mark Nicholas discussing the idea with then Hampshire vice-chairman Bill Hughes in a Leeds restaurant.

of dual carriageway, including the Puddletown bypass, until it reaches its roundabout with the A31 road at Bere Regis. Continuing roughly south-easterly still, it becomes dual carriageway again near Upton (Upton, Dorset), before returning to a single carriageway through Poole and Bournemouth, apart from a small section of dual carriageway on Wessex Way. Upon reaching Christchurch, there is a dual carriageway on the bypass. It then heads in a north-easterly direction through the New Forest, passing through the town of Lyndhurst (Lyndhurst, Hampshire) where it meets the A337 road (to Lymington). It continues through Ashurst (Ashurst, Hampshire) and Totton, meeting the A36 road and M27 motorway at grade separated (Grade separation) junctions. It then turns north-east, acting as the western part of Southampton's ring road, with the A27 road making up the eastern part. It terminates at Swaythling, on the northern outskirts of Southampton. Genera The type genus is ''Formicium'' with the genus ''Titanomyrma'' being described in 2011. ''Formicium'' includes the described species which are known from fossil wings only. ''Formicium'' is known from three species. ''Formicium mirabile'', named by Theodore D. A. Cockerell (Theodore Dru Alison Cockerell) in 1920, and ''Formicium brodiei'', named by John O. Westwood (John Obadiah Westwood) in 1854, are both known from fore wings (Wing (insect)) found in the middle Eocene of Bournemouth, Dorset, England. The third species named, ''Formicium berryi'' was named by Frank M. Carpenter in 1929 from the middle Eocene Claiborne Formation in Puryear, Tennessee, USA, though he misidentified the formation as the Wilcox Formation. ''F. berryi'' was the first described occurrence of the genus and, until 2011, the subfamily, in North America. With the description of ''Titanomyrma'', the two species already described from complete body specimens, ''Formicium giganteum'' and ''F. simillimum'', were transferred to the new genus as ''Titanomyrma giganteum'' and ''T. simillimum'' respectively. ''Titanomyrma'' also contains a third species, ''T. lubei'' described in the same paper as the genus and which is the second member of the subfamily known from North America. * September 19 – Compagnie des Messageries Aériennes (CMA) commences a regular service between Paris and London, using ex-military Breguet 14s. * September 24 – The 1919 Schneider Trophy race – the first since 1914 – is flown at Bournemouth, UK.

Bournemouth

'''Bournemouth''' World Heritage Site. According to the 2011 census, the town has a population of 183,491 making it the largest settlement in Dorset. With Poole to the west and Christchurch (Christchurch, Dorset) in the east, Bournemouth forms the South East Dorset conurbation, which has a total population of over 400,000.

Before it was founded in 1810 by Lewis Tregonwell, the area was a deserted heathland occasionally visited by fishermen and smugglers. Initially marketed as a health resort, the town received a boost when it appeared in Dr Granville's (Augustus Granville) book, ''The Spas of England''. Bournemouth's growth really accelerated with the arrival of the railway and it became a recognised town in 1870. Historically (Historic counties of England) part of Hampshire, it joined Dorset with the reorganisation of local government in 1974 (Local Government Act 1972). Since 1997, the town has been administered by a unitary authority, giving it autonomy from Dorset County Council although it remains however part of the ceremonial county. The local council is Bournemouth Borough Council.

The town centre has notable Victorian architecture and the spire of St Peter's Church (St Peter's Church, Bournemouth), one of three Grade I listed churches in the borough, is a local landmark. Bournemouth's location has made it a popular destination for tourists, attracting over five million visitors annually with its beaches and popular nightlife. The town is also a regional centre of business, home of the Bournemouth International Centre or BIC, and a financial sector that is worth more than £1,000 million in Gross Value Added.
