Split services GWR Radio began splitting frequencies as required by the government - which declared its desire to end simulcasting on both FM and AM. GWR Radio launched Brunel Radio (Brunel Classic Gold) on 15 November 1988, a "golden oldies" station on 1260 kHz in Bristol, and 936

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.

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).

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.

The neighborhood of St. Mary Mead is served by trains arriving at Paddington (London Paddington station) railway station, indicating a location west of London. It has been suggested that Market Basing is Basingstoke and Danemouth is Bournemouth so this would place St. Mary Mead in Hampshire. In the BBC Miss Marple Miss Marple (TV series

Early career Patrick Head was born into motor sport, his father Michael racing Jaguar (Jaguar (car)) sportscars in the 1950s, and was privately educated at Wellington College (Wellington College (Berkshire)). After leaving school Head joined the Royal Navy, but soon realised that a career in the military was not how he wanted to spend his life and so left to attend University, first in Birmingham and later in Bournemouth. Head graduated in 1970 with a Mechanical Engineering degree (academic degree) from UCL (University College London) and immediately joined the chassis manufacturer Lola (Lola Cars) in Huntingdon. Here he formed a friendly relationship with John Barnard, whose Formula One designs for McLaren, Benetton (Benetton Formula) and Ferrari (Scuderia Ferrari) would later go on to compete against Williams. Head was involved in a number of new projects all trying to become established as car builders or engineering companies and it was during this period that Head and Frank Williams (Frank Williams (Formula One)) met. Finally becoming disillusioned by his lack of success Head quit motor racing to work on building boats.

Family and early life Richard, an only child, was born in Middlesbrough in 1943. Her parents, Henry William (died in 1954) and Beatrice Reay (1910–1972) (née Cutter) Emerton, were publicans and ran the Corporation Hotel in the town. Emerton and Cutter married in Paddington in 1939. While Richard was a baby, her family moved to Bournemouth. Later they moved to the Isle of Wight and then to London, where they ran the Shepherds Tavern in Shepherd Market, where Elizabeth Taylor and Antony Armstrong-Jones, 1st Earl of Snowdon were said to be customers. Richard attended the local primary school, St George's, but her education was interrupted when her family moved again, this time to the Valentine Hotel at Gants Hill, then in Essex, now in Greater London. Another move, to the Streatham Park Hotel in south London, followed a few months later. It was here, in December 1954, that Richard's father committed suicide. The actress, then 11, found his body. Her mother Beatrice never remarried, and died of liver cancer in May 1972. Last years Other famous actors who performed at the theatre included Charles Wyndham (Charles Wyndham (actor)), William Terriss, J. L. Toole, Rutland Barrington (who became bankrupt managing the theatre for a time), Henry Ainley (who briefly co-managed with Gilbert Miller), Claude Rains, Charles Hawtrey (Charles Hawtrey (stage actor)), and Orson Welles. Laurence Olivier and his wife Vivien Leigh took over the management of the theatre in 1950, opening with Christopher Fry’s new play, ''Venus Observed''. In 1951, they produced and starred in an ambitious production of both Shaw's ''Caesar and Cleopatra (Caesar and Cleopatra (play))'' and Shakespeare's ''Antony and Cleopatra'' for the Festival of Britain. In 1954, a Terence Rattigan play, ''Separate Tables'', commenced a run of 726 performances, a record for this theatre. The play (actually two one-act plays, both taking place in the same setting at a Hotel in Bournemouth, a seaside town on the south coast of England) was intended to star Olivier and Leigh, but scheduling did not permit this, and the plays starred Margaret Leighton and Eric Portman. In 1996, Tony went on to play at all the major dance clubs events in the UK, including, Legacy @ The Manor in Ringwood, Slinky @ the Opera House in Bournemouth, Cream (Cream (nightclub)), Gatecrasher, Godskitchen, and Creamfields, this together with his worldwide bookings, led to a punishing DJ schedule. - 276 Bournemouth 46.18 Unitary, Borough Dorset - death_date 29 November 2003 death_place Bournemouth, England height DATE OF DEATH 29 November 2003 PLACE OF DEATH Bournemouth, England Early life Fox was educated in Bournemouth and served 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). He has been exiled there for the convenience of his family. Although the script of the series makes great play of its Bournemouth setting, the location filming for the first three series was largely carried out in and around Brighton and Worthing. 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. '''Bournemouth University''' is a university in and around the large south coast town of Bournemouth, UK (although its main campus is actually situated in neighbouring Poole). It has several well respected (John Kimble, 1999) departments including The School of Applied Sciences (which focuses upon Archaeology, Anthropology, Biology, Geography and Forensic Sciences), The School of Health and Social Care, The School of Tourism, The Business School, School of Design, Engineering & Computing and The Media School.

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.
