in the Parachute Regiment (Parachute Regiment (United Kingdom)), 1943-46. He began his career at the Corporation in the 1950s, writing scripts for the ''Television Newsreel'' programme before going on to create and edit the popular sports programme ''Sportsview''.

Plot Set at the fictional Bayview Retirement Home near Bournemouth, the show was based around Diana Trent and her relationship with Tom Ballard, a former accountant with semi-feigned dementia (Senile dementia).

The first genuine appearance of Bournemouth town centre and the nearby suburb of Boscombe is in the 1992 Christmas special. The stage show ''Hi-de-Hi'' was made into a musical (musical theatre), called ''Hi-de-Hi - The Holiday Musical'', in the early years of the show. Labelled as a "summer pantomime" by its critics, the production featured most of the TV cast plus several new characters. It did not follow the television storylines, but it was a success nonetheless. It did a summer season in Bournemouth in 1983, a Christmas season in London in 1983 and a summer season in Blackpool in 1984. It was short lived, however, when some of the cast complained that filming the TV series and doing the summer show limited their offers of acting jobs elsewhere.

lead development

Following a string of successful adventure games, LucasArts assigned Dave Grossman (Dave Grossman (game developer)) and Tim Schafer to lead development of a new game. The two had previously assisted Ron Gilbert with the creation of ''The Secret of Monkey Island'' and ''Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge'', and the studio felt that Grossman and Schafer were ready to manage a project. The company believed that the pair's humor matched well with that of ''Maniac Mansion'' and suggested working on a sequel. The two developers agreed and commenced production.

Before it was founded in 1810 by Lewis Tregonwell, the area was a deserted heathland occasionally visited by fishermen and smugglers.

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.
