As its name implies Travemuende stands at the mouth of the River Trave in Schleswig-Holstein looking out over the Baltic Sea. An ancient fishing and merchant town, it became a fashionable watering-place during the nineteenth century, and in recent years has acquired a new vogue as the Monte Carlo of Northern Europe. It derives an added piquancy from its situation, facing as it does across the Trave Estuary the most northerly point of the iron curtain between East and West Germany.
Peter Sellers, Harry Secombe and Spike Milligan in ' Lurgi Strikes Britain! '
Poor Arnold Fringe is suddenly stricken with the Dreaded Lurgi in a Lancashire bus. No doctor can find an antidote. Even Dr. Neddie Seagoon , twice struck off the register, is baffled. Every known cure is sought, but without success. Within a few days Lurgi has claimed nine thousand victims. Isolation bays are set up and Lancashire is hastily evacuated. Then, one black night, that none of the Albert Hall audience will ever forget, Lurgi reached London!

Production by Stanley Williamson
John Peel died a hundred years ago this month, an obscure Cumberland huntsman. Today, thanks to the song written about him by his friend, John Woodcock Graves, his name is known wherever the English language is spoken or sung, and the man himself has become almost a legend. This programme traces the growth of the legend and tries to rediscover the real figure at the heart of it.
