Nantwich Show

A very wet, very muddy Nantich show. With loads of cheese and cows but mainly mud.

BBC Radio Stoke used the bus to broadcast the mid morning show, or should that be Mud morning as the ground gave in to the rain.

Last day of the last Royal Show

The sun has come out for a few hours at least at the Royal Show. And the stars of Radio are out too.

As Liz Kershaw broadcast for BBC Coventry & Warwickshire, Nicky Cambell broadcast his show on BBC Radio 5 Live.

Later the BBC C&W will broadcast as the show ends for the final time.

The Royal Show (day one)

The first day of the very last Royal Show in Stoneleigh was a bit of a washout really. Thunder and lightening kept people away and the BBC Cov & Wark staff dried out on the bus.

We did broadcast a full show from the bus but numbers where down.

3 more days to go. Hope it's better weather for them.
