GUEST,jim bainbridge BBC Radio 4 - April 2020 lockdown performances (9) RE: BBC Radio 4 - April 2020 lockdown performances 28 Apr 20


just heard 'The Dam' on BBC radio player- the presentation was a little worthy for my taste, but it did capture the nature of the pre- dam culture in that area. I was often hiking up there in the 60s and it was a special place, well illustrated by the Tickells.
Ironic that the dam was built largely for the industry of the north east- especially the steel and chemical plants of Teesside- these are of course now a pale shadow of their former selves.
It made all the more poignant Mike Tickell'sScottish friend's observation as the water flowed into the dam- 'Mike, what have we done?'.
There's no going back......
