BBC Lincolnshire to run a week of OBs

BBC Radio Lincolnshire is planning a whole week of outside broadcasts, with 36 programmes over 7 days airing live from locations around the county.

The ‘One Week in Lincolnshire’ project will see 86 hours of output delivered from on the road, with nine reporters also out and about every day.

Managing Editor Charlie Partridge told “I doubt any local radio station has ever attempted something as ambitious as this, but we didn’t want to do something half-hearted. Apart from a small team back at base, our radio station is effectively on tour for one week visiting all corners of the county. We thought we knew Lincolnshire pretty well, but as part of the planning for the week we’ve made even more discoveries about our great county and we can’t wait to share them with everyone.”

Charlie added: “The logistics and technological side of this project are mind-boggling, but it will all be worth it as we hope to present a fascinating and unique insight into our county.”

The project runs from Monday 14th May to Sunday 20th. The Rod Whiting Breakfast Show will come from Gainsborough Old Hall, the National Centre for Craft and Design in Sleaford and Grantham railway station. Melvyn Prior’s Mid-Morning programme will focus on an issue a day as he travels the county. He will look at volunteering while at Plough Hill, in Caistor, and healthcare while broadcasting from the Pilgrim Hospital in Boston. Peter Levy’s Show will see him interview guests at the Meridian Centre in Louth on Monday, The Waterside Centre in Lincoln on Tuesday, the Embassy Theatre in Skegness on Wednesday, Boston’s Assembly Rooms on Thursday before rounding off the week in Spalding at the South Holland Centre.

There will also be an open day for people to look around the Radio Lincolnshire studios on Saturday 19th May 9am-12noon.
