Thanks to Peter Foster of Dorchester for getting in touch.

Peter said that reading about children's author Gilbert Dalton’s time living in Weymouth made him think of the BBC Radio Children’s Hour, particularly in the 1950s and the early 1960s.

Peter writes: “There was a regular series of plays entitled Charter Pilot, written by Gilbert Dalton. They were produced by the BBC Midlands Children’s Hour and broadcast from Birmingham. I would listen in to Charter Pilot relayed on the BBC West of England Home Service.”
