      “...A yellow fog swirls past the window-pane
      As night descends upon this fabled street:
      A lonely hansom splashes through the rain,
      The ghostly gas lamps fail at twenty feet.
      Here, though the world explode, these two survive,
      And it is always eighteen ninety-five.”

        BBC sounds App is your go to, you can listen to it on schedule or as a podcast type thing.

        Also, if you have Sky, Freeview etc, check the radio listings as some of them have regional BBC channels.

        You won't get it via FM or DAB though, your too far away.

            Radiogram? Get you. I still prefer
            to have it telegraphed in sections.Stop.

              Not sure whether this is what Al was referring to or not, but the link below works:

                    Ice chest.
                    Outside dunny c/w redback spiders.Lit by a candle.
                    Chooks for eggs and meat.
                    Fruit trees,yum.

                      Lucky bugger, we had to go to the dunny in the dark. Sometimes had to dig a hole and empty the pan in we had visitors and fill the can before the dunny man came next.

                      There are two ways to be fooled, one is to believe what isn't true, the other is to refuse to believe that which is true.

                        You were lucky! We had to walk twenty miles to the nearest toilet and when we got back our dad would thrash us to sleep with his belt!

                        Oh, sorry....I got a bit carried away.

                          I've never been to Oz but a mate of mine went over many years ago to watch cricket. He loved the place but I remember him saying that he couldn't make his mind up who to feel more sorry for? Him having to cope with the spiders or the England batsmen having to cope with Killer and Thommo

                            Hi Herlock - I haven't been to Oz either but I have been to New Zealand and rather surprisingly bumped into Thommo there a couple of years ago. Less surprisingly perhaps, it was in the bar of Auckland's Eden Park ground. Unlike the blood lusting fast bowler of earlier years, he was friendly and came across as a decent guy.

                            If I can tune in my own wireless set, I'll give this new programme a go. From a bit of swotting up in advance, I do suspect though that some elements may be a bit too farfetched for my liking. Nothing like being openminded - and I'm probably not!

                            More seriously, thanks to etenguy for flagging and starting this thread.

                            Best regards,
                            OneRound

                              Hi OneRound,

                              Do they know that you've escaped from the A6 thread?

                              Thommo always seems s down to earth bloke when I've seen interviews with him. I certainly wouldn't have wanted to have been 22 yards away from him with a cricket ball in his hand though. It's not good if you're facing s team where Dennis Lillee isn't the quickest bowler in the side!

                              I'll certainly give this a go.
                              Regards
