At Home This Morning is a fortnightly programme for older listeners, broadcast Sunday 8-9am, Tuesday 11am and Thursday 9am
Each edition contains interviews, features, music and memories. In the last twelve months we’ve covered topics such as neighbourhood care, older drivers, and lunch clubs, and highlighted other facilities and sources of support available to older people. We’ve looked at a newly-formed amateur dance company whose members are all over the age of sixty, and examined the suitability of sports such as tennis and bowls for older people. We’ve also heard reminiscences of life in Brighton and Hove in the earlier parts of the twentieth century. In addition to the benefit we provide to our listeners, our team members, most of whom have no previous experience in broadcasting, are learning new skills such as interviewing for radio.
