BBC Radio York celebrates 25

July 4th was a special day for people in North Yorkshire, as the first BBC Local Radio station for the county celebrated 25 years of broadcasting.

To mark the station's 25th birthday, the station has delved into the sound archive to produce a journey through time. Music from each of the 25 years mixed with BBC Radio York's reports of the biggest news stories enables listeners to relive the last quarter of a century.

A day of outside broadcasts and inserts from around the county, and slices of birthday cake were being offered to listeners in lots of towns and villages across the patch.

And York minster rang its main bell (Great Peter) 25 times at noon to mark the occasion.
