Maurice Kirk is engaged in what he believes is the biggest ever civil court case against South Wales police in Cardiff. One quarter of the way through the three month trial he is suing for harassment but the Welsh press don’t appear to be interested in the story.
We travel back to 1982 and a US amateur TV interview with filmmaker Allan Frankovich who was looking at CIA tactics of the age and comparing them to those of the Nazi Gestapo.
Mark Higgins reviews some stories in this week’s news, both property related, one on squatting and another on property developers getting cheap land to build on as the planning rules are relaxed for them.
Paul Fernie is a keen amateur astronomer and today introduces us to some of the fundamentals of his hobby such as how to distiguish stars from planets in the night sky and discusses some of the intriguing aspects of coincidence or intelligent design in the solar system.
About Maurice Kirk
Maurice was born 12th March1945, a war baby, in Taunton, Somerset, West of England, within a final family of four brothers and one sister while mother and father were working 24/7 to run a country veterinary practice. Country pursuits very much dominated his spare time from most sports with his passion still for hunting , shooting and fishing! Maurice is currently trying to fly to South Africa in his WW2 Piper Cub,registration G-KURK. His other D-Day Cub, G-KERK, is destined, on skis, for a rather taller mountain after his promise to Sir Edmond, six years ago. Meanwhile, the task of obtaining justice in the UK courts, in order to practice veterinary surgery, is proving to be somewhat elusive. Authority has quite another agenda.
