Back to 1986 and forward to 1984

On this morning’s show we had an appeal from the South Essex Link of Chernobyl Children’s Life Line. Last Tuesday was the 30th anniversary of the nuclear power plant disaster, but with the resulting contamination expected to last for hundreds of years many children are still developing conditions such as thyroid or bone cancer or leukaemia. The annual holidays organised by the Link for children from some of the worst affected areas are believed to give significant health benefits; however, one of the families helping to host the children this year has had to withdraw just a few weeks before the children are due to arrive. Gaynor Manthorpe explained that they’re urgently looking for a couple – with or without children themselves – to step in and help by looking after two boys, aged 10 and 12, ideally for the duration of the holiday between 12th June and 10th July. You can contact Gaynor on 01245 328 235.

We also heard a chilling message from Big Brother, ahead of Early Doors Productions performance next month of George Orwell’s iconic story set in a totalitarian society. Director Amy Clayton explained what the novel 1984 means to her and what she hopes the audience will take away, and Darren Matthews (Winston), Laura Leigh-Newton (Julia) and Justin Cartledge (O’Brian) described their characters and the relationships between them.

1984 is at Chelmsford’s Cramphorn Theatre from Thursday 12th to Saturday 14th May.
