Event Description

I’m sure that we are grateful to the BBC for protecting us from the lewd, crude, and obscene tracks, and I’m sure we are grateful for their protection. But all is not as it would seem - can you imagine why they would have banned Bing Crosby?, Petula Clark? or even Pinky & Perky? What was it that caused the BBC to take such decisions? Let’s reminisce, take a nostalgic look back and discover the astonishing, bizarre, and inexplicable reasons for their actions. You will be amused.

David Clark

Meet The Speaker, David

Born and raised in London, David Clark has lived and worked in Germany and Australia but returned to the UK in 1970 to live in Worcestershire where he is now retired. David has worked in shipping, been a rep for foreign newspapers and magazines. He's worked in theatre management, had two shops and ended up working for Age Concern. He was also a City councillor for 20 years and served as Mayor of Worcester!

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
