The ‘Beeb’ Comes to Tangmere

In order to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain, the local BBC TV station (BBC South) and BBC Sussex Radio recently visited the Museum. On 13 August (‘Eagle Day’ in 1940, the start of the Luftwaffe offensive to remove Britain’s Fighter Command from the skies) BBC Sussex radio brought its outside broadcast vehicle to the Museum to interview members of staff and Battle of Britain veterans. Alan Bower, the Museum’s Director, and local Selsey resident Joe Roddis, an engine fitter who served with No 234 Squadron at Middle Wallop during the battle were amongst those involved. On 20 August, seventy years to the day since Prime Minister Winston Churchill made his famous ‘Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed, by so many, to so few’ speech, BBC South devoted their half hour TV programme to the Battle of Britain. Dudley Hooley, the Museum’s Education Officer, answered questions live on the programme and David Coxon, the Curator, was interviewed about Sergeant Pilot Dennis Noble and the remains of his Hurricane displayed in the Museum – see this month’s artefact of the month. The following day David gave a short radio interview for BBC Sussex on the Noble Hurricane.
