Dominic King - Darent Valley Hospital, Playing for Success centres and Brighton Rock


Dominic King hears about the family from Sussex that is demanding an apology from Darent Valley Hospital in Dartford. The family says their father, Peter Harwood, was left in agony at the hospital because no staff were available to prescribe pain relief in the final hours of his life. Playing for Success centres across the South East, which use sport to encourage children to improve in numeracy and literacy, may close if their government funding is withdrawn at the end of March 2011. Dom has a report from one of the centres at the St Lawrence Cricket Ground in Canterbury. Brighton is preparing to host the premiere of the remake of the classic film noir Brighton Rock. In 1947 the movie launched the career of Richard Attenborough. Robin Gibson reports on how the original film and the re-make compare with one another. Dominic King talks to Joey Tempest the lead singer of Europe about their biggest hit The Final Countdown and their latest tour. Drivetime across the South East is a six-month pilot from BBC Radio Kent, BBC Sussex and BBC Surrey. For Listen Live on the iPlayer, you will hear the programme with local bulletins for each county. If you listen on the iPlayer on Listen Again, you will hear the whole programme but with Kent news bulletins only. This pilot is being assessed by the BBC Trust and the BBC will be carrying out audience research to decide whether the pilot continues. Any permanent change would require full Trust approval.
