Swansbrook’s hard man of news will be interrogating our politicians, councillors and
publicans in his relentless quest for the truth. Stuart learned all about Broadcasting at
the BBC and was a top reporter with a number of national stations before returning to
his original career in law - our very own legal eagle.
Stuart presents and produces “The Broadsheet” and “In Conversation” as well as
coordinating the station’s factual output and organising the schedules.
Ian has worked in broadcasting since the world began. For years the voice of
“disgusted of Tunbridge Wells” on BBC Points of View, he’s worked on both sides of the
microphone and camera, is an actor and playwright and currently works as a voiceover
artist. Known up and down the land for his cheerful catch phrase “I’m off to the pub”.
Ian produces and presents his weekly “Happy Hour”, reports on goings on and looks
after Swansbrook’s website.

know it. He made his first broadcast in December of 1964 on Radio City, a pirate

in the Albert Hall and Festival Hall when she was working at Great Ormond Street in
the 70’s - this, combined with her encyclopedic knowledge of “serious” music makes
Chris the ideal producer/presenter for our “Classical Swansbrook” show.
Dr.Paul is the caring voice of Swansbrook. Known for his work with bees and a love of
big cigars. Dr Paul is constantly on the move and will be reporting from exotic locations
throughout the Shire. If it’s touchy feely Dr Paul will be there touching it and feeling it
and if it needs probing Dr Paul’s probe will be primed. It’s not clear what sort of Doctor
he is but It’s widely believed that he has an ology of some sort.
Paul presents and produces “In Conversation” as well as special events and large
