Unknown speaker (HV0PSUNK) [1] up and call me now [recording giving tel-num] A little music as well we have on the show we have a video from Elvis to give away in the second half of the programme and star guest this afternoon is Mary Whitehouse.
[2] [music] [recording giving tel-num] [music] Oh ho ho Steeley Dan and erm reeling reeling out the thingummybobs.
[3] Hello that's a nice way to start it isn't it?
[4] Good morning good afternoon whatever you like to call O [...] never mind you know the number.
[5] Now er we're going to start this morning talking about animals.
[6] More specifically why we're so cruel to them.
[7] Britain must be an animal erm a country of animal abusers looking at the statistics.
[8] Why do we hate animals so much?
[9] If you have a view on that O nine O four six four one six four one and I'd like to hear from you all you have to do is pick up the phone and give me a f a call [laughing] now [] sorry.
[10] Did Karen say to somebody on that thing did I hear her say, What are you on?
[11] She looked at me and said that when I walked in this morning.
[12] What are you on?
[13] I didn't like to tell her is was Phylisan but there we are.
[14] Anyway erm we've been hearing on this programme recently of course that er people are against hunting against fishing er they say it's cruel.
[15] But they are willing quite willing apparently to give and receive pets as presents and millions of them end up getting abused neglected and destroyed.
[16] Every year we see that doleful little puppy on the television screen and every year thousands of people give pets for Christmas.
[17] The R S P C A have to pick up the pieces and they've launched a campaign to try and stop it and joining me now is Alan.
[18] Is this Alan Oritt, Alan?
Alan (PS3DC) [19] Correct yeah.
james whale (PS3DB) [20] OK you're the Superintendent for the north east of England that covers this area too.
Alan (PS3DC) [21] I'm the Chief Superintendent that covers the the north east of England yes.
james whale (PS3DB) [22] OK.
[23] So you're the big boss are you?
Alan (PS3DC) [24] One of them.
james whale (PS3DB) [25] One of them.
[26] Have you er polished your brass today got it all ready to talk to me I hope you have.
[27] Now [clears throat] sorry Alan I've got to turn you up a bit you don't mind do you?
Alan (PS3DC) [28] No not at all.
james whale (PS3DB) [29] It won't hurt there we are that's nice OK.
[30] Now Alan, first of all er have we learned anything do you think over the years or do we seem to be getting worse?
Alan (PS3DC) [31] Sadly the things seem to be getting worse.
[32] Er we the Society try our very best to get over the message to people just before Christmas.
[33] Please don't give a pet for Christmas.
[34] But unfortunately er it seems to fall on many deaf ears and we the Society as other many charities who deal with animals are left to pick up the pieces.
james whale (PS3DB) [35] Why is it it seems to me also, and I may be totally wrong here, but it seems people who are least likely to look after themselves are the ones who want to have animals?
[36] I mean you see them walking around particularly people who go for the big dogs, you see them walking around with a big thick necks, the tattoos, the er the boots and the jeans rolled up.
Alan (PS3DC) [37] Well I think that's a little bit to do with a bit of macho image.
[38] Erm and er perhaps it's the owners wanting to look rather big.
[39] Unfortunately they don't think before they get the pet that you've got to look after it.
[40] It takes
james whale (PS3DB) [41] But an an
Alan (PS3DC) [42] time it takes money.
james whale (PS3DB) [43] Another thing is of course it's all pets it isn't just dogs and cats.
Alan (PS3DC) [44] That's right yes.
james whale (PS3DB) [45] I mean people have er er budgie or er er er another sort of bird and they think it doesn't need any looking after.
Alan (PS3DC) [46] That's right.
[47] Er just before Christmas you see people think that buying a Christmas present er that's easy.
[48] Once you've er got over the newness of it the the the thing can be put in away in a drawer can be put back in it's box.
[49] But with an animal it's for life.
[50] Er you've got to look after it.
[51] You've got to devote a lot of time to the care and attention that it requires.
james whale (PS3DB) [52] I I heard the other day what I thought was one of the best advertisements not to have an animal for Christmas very emotive, er I think it was for the R S P C A, and I I'm told I don't think you've heard it but it b basically it's it's er the sound of a [...] er well it's a human pretending to be a dog really and saying you know, Well this is nice my my er family have taken me to the vet, I didn't think I was ill but never mind.
[53] Oh here comes a nice man with er an injection.
[54] Ah perhaps they're going to give me some vitamins.
Alan (PS3DC) [55] Yes.
james whale (PS3DB) [56] And it goes on and on like this until the voice is erm, I can't feel anything any more.
Alan (PS3DC) [57] Yes it's it's it was one of the er advertisements or programmes that went out on radio er again this is why I've been trying to get over to people the sad things that have to happen to animals.
[58] Erm we hate putting animals to sleep.
[59] In fact it was the Society's policy now that we won't put animals to sleep unless there is an extreme er cause for that the sick, diseased.
[60] Erm and we're attempting to try to get over to people please please think before you get a pet.
james whale (PS3DB) [61] Why is it that in the north of England, particularly in this region of the north of England, we seem to be worse than anywhere else?
Alan (PS3DC) [62] I I don't think you are.
[63] Now I've spent seventeen years in Hartlepool and yes that er
james whale (PS3DB) [64] They hate monkeys in Hartlepool did you know that?
Alan (PS3DC) [laugh]
james whale (PS3DB) [65] Found a honkey they monkey
Alan (PS3DC) [66] I wasn't going to say anything the Kirkham Hotel.
james whale (PS3DB) [67] they hung it.
Alan (PS3DC) [68] Er yes and there's one hanging behind their door.
[69] Er the thing is that the people in the northeast yes er there is a lot more work done up there by the Society but you know since I've been down in Horsham I have found that the northeast is not alone.
[70] There are many other areas in the country where animals are seriously abused.
[71] The northeast isn't the only place.
james whale (PS3DB) [72] Mm.
[73] Ok thank you very much indeed er Chief Superintendent.
[74] And Pa Pat I don't think I don't hold out any hope at all that people will pay any attention they will go they'll see a little puppy somewhere they'll say, Oh that's lovely we'll buy that for [...] Tommy er, and then Tommy will abuse it totally and er they'll say, Well the dog was a a waste of time it didn't work properly and er didn't know how to er how to look after itself.
Alan (PS3DC) [75] May I just say that the majority of people will care for their animals but it is those people who buy, we have s er cases where erm people will turn up on Christmas day and say to their elderly relative, We bought you a puppy.
[76] The elderly relative hadn't didn't want a puppy.
[77] Never ever wanted a puppy because it makes them a captive person
james whale (PS3DB) [78] Mm.
Alan (PS3DC) [79] they've got to look after something.
[80] And this is where the Society is called in er to look after that puppy.
[81] Or just after Christmas usually between Christmas and New Year.
[82] We're called to waste ground, behind pet shops, a any place to pick up boxes of unwanted puppies, kittens that have obviously been er planned for selling to people er before Christmas.
james whale (PS3DB) [83] Good Alan thank you very much indeed.
Alan (PS3DC) [84] You're very welcome.
james whale (PS3DB) [85] Let er let's hope it'll mm [clears throat] won't be like that er mm this er this year.
[86] Now he says deep intake of breath don't have a puppy for Christmas.
[87] Do as I do have turkey instead.
[88] [music] I'm playing this one because I like it.
[89] It's a little a little fresh Cajun music from New Orleans from the [...] and I can say that er that's why I'm playing it really.
[90] O nine O four six four one six four one any calls about dogs or er any other sort of animal you want to give us a ring call us now.
[91] [music] [...] which er er probably rude I dunno it's just [...] .
[92] Er B B C radio York you are not in the South of France but as it is persistently snowing around the county at the moment I thought you know a little French flavour.
[93] Was it the Beaujolais Nouveau wasn't it this week was it?
[94] Everybody seems to be nodding around here I thought it was Thursday it was wasn't it?
[95] Could anybody bring us a bottle down here [...] you know because that would be nice wouldn't it on a on a cool Saturday afternoon here as we sit overlooking the grand metropolis of York.
[96] It would be nice to have just a little swig of the erm of the new grape.
[97] Has anybody tasted it?
[98] I haven't tasted it anybody taste give me a call.
[99] I cos quite frankly I have never heard such an exciting R S P C A man as that last one so I don't expect to get much response to that.
[100] Er so let's talk about the, can't hear can he he's not up in this area?
[101] No he doesn't know does he?
[102] Er stuff it.
[103] Ah anyway so erm I don't think anybody's bothered about er fish and chips arrived have they?
[104] Everybody's in there.
[105] Thing about this programme it is so it is so crucial to everything that goes on at Radio York while it is happening, they eat in the other room that's how much er interest there is they eat in the other room.
[106] Tour buses around York.
[107] Should they be banned?
[108] Should we get rid of them?
[109] Is York a big enough city to have them?
[110] You know the open topped buses where they go round they hold up the traffic.
[111] I know the tourists are very important to York but for goodness sake it isn't a huge city can't they walk round?
[112] Why can't they walk round?
[113] I think if we got rid of all those open topped tour buses in York, traffic would be a lot easier.
[114] What do you think?
[115] Give me a call you know the number O nine O four six four one six four one.
[116] You can ring now.
[117] You can ring about anything you want actually.
[118] Anything you feel like you can ring I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm really you know.
[119] Shame of the Killer oh no I don't think we'll do that er [...] look through the Sun see if there's anything interesting erm [sniff] in there [reading] I've got nothing in the Ewbank [] .
[120] Boxer Chris Ewbank worth around eight million is moaning that he's got no money.
[121] What has he done with his money?
[122] What has got he didn't give me any.
[123] Oh he's bought a big house has he?
[124] OK.
[125] Usual sort of sex, drugs, rock and roll as you get in the papers on a Saturday as well.
[126] Or is he the best dress man too?
[127] Chris Ewbank is the best dressed man.
[128] That'll upset Jonathan Ross he always thought he was.
[129] Er O nine O four six four one six four one.
[130] Anybody who can hum by the way the er theme to the television programme Ivanhoe and I would be interested to hear from you as well.
[131] Now as the United Nations doesn't have enough on its plate dealing with the problems on earth and obviously they're er they're there at the forefront of everything that happens [laugh] [clears throat] .
[132] Action is being demanded to track down possible visitors from outer space and this is serious.
[133] [reading] A small group demonstrators have staged a protest outside the U N Headquarters in New York calling for an end to what they say is a cover up over the existence of U F Os.
[134] One of the organizers, Michael Luckman, says President Clinton is scared to acknowledge that superior beings do exist. []
(PS3DD) [135] The United States er government is afraid as are other governments to admit er to their people that there is a higher form of life.
[136] Obviously if the U F Os touch down that would mean they would be charge and not Bill Clinton at the White House.
james whale (PS3DB) [137] Okay well er I I figure that there must be quite a number of er extraterrestrials [laughing] around [] around North Yorkshire and I thought it would be quite nice actually if er if there are any extraterrestrials listening at the moment they could ring in and we could have a chat.
[138] So if erm if if you [...] yeah yes E T E T phoned when what do you want?
[139] I'm not even speaking to you because of that flipping letter.

[142] What you doing?
Karen (PS3DE) [143] Just shutting that up a bit.
james whale (PS3DB) [144] That's my knob if I want it open I'll leave it open.

[213] Also on the A one in the Leeming area the inside lane of the south bound carriageway's closed at Holby Grange for emergency gas repair works and delays are likely as a result there.
[214] In Selby there's a demonstration taking place this afternoon it starts at half past one and will go via Barlby Road and Scott Road and some traffic delay delays are likely as a result.
[215] Also in York today traffic near to the Knavesmire could be slow due to an event taking place there.
[216] In the Ripon area weekend roadworks mean the Road will be closed as it passes under the A one bridge delays are likely as a result.

[284] Anyway right so erm head teachers [clears throat] in the area have been complaining their schools are not tidy not cleaned sufficiently.
Noel (PS3DG) [285] Yes.
james whale (PS3DB) [286] Why?
[287] I mean why [...] why are our children going to school in in pig sties?
Noel (PS3DG) [288] Well I think it's er down to the competitive tendering process where the County Council has had to put out the cleaning contracts for schools to tender.
[289] There were problems a few years ago when it first started with th the initial contract which was was won by the the County's own direct service organization and now it seems we're having a repeat of of those problems.
[290] Er with the new contracts that started in September erm basically it seems that some teachers are having to do bits of cleaning themselves to keep their their classroom up to up to scratch up to the standards they ought they ought to be.
[291] Erm we're hearing reports that parts of schools having to to be closed or th threatened to be closed because they're not sufficiently hygienic for pupils or teachers to work in.
james whale (PS3DB) [292] Oh how disgusting.
Noel (PS3DG) [293] And er
james whale (PS3DB) [294] That is isn't that disgusting?
Noel (PS3DG) [295] It certainly is yes .
james whale (PS3DB) [296] That is disgusting yes.
[297] So all these [...] a lot of these firms are not up to the job why do why don't you sack them people are not up to the job why don't they get sacked?
Noel (PS3DG) [298] Well there are monitoring systems which are meant to be in place a and which may be er are not are not effective enough erm.
[299] I mean I've heard representatives for County Council th this week saying that er as far as they were concerned th the standards weren't sufficiently low yet for them t to take action.
[300] But basically th every time the contract comes up for renewal, what will happen for a company to attempt to win the contract it's got to cut the hours of its employees and its also got to try and c cut the costs erm by cutting pay and that's the way that's the way contracts are won in this situation and as long as that keeps happening then the situation's going to get steadily worse.
james whale (PS3DB) [301] What are we going I mean we we've heard also I'm changing the subject now because that was the the sort of political answer I'd expect and er I suppose until I get somebody else come on and say he's talking absolute whatever er I mean I think it is down to the people who live and work with the school.
[302] I think if you all make a mess you should be severely reprimanded quite frankly expect other people to come round and pick up your mess.
Noel (PS3DG) [303] Well that's something that a as a teacher we're erm in my school we're constantly saying t to the pupils I mean if they ha they have a they have a certain responsibility t to tidy up after them and t to try and keep their work area tidy that's not the same as er as cleaning at the end of the day as sweeping up all all the dust and and so on.
james whale (PS3DB) [304] What about this mum's army of teachers is this going to come to fruition as some point or not?
Noel (PS3DG) [305] I don't I don't believe it is erm at the mo well earlier this week a report was published by the National Commission on Education which was er an independent erm Commission that was set up erm and they they've said that basically what we need to be doing is t if we're trying to raise standards is to keep the idea of having an all graduate profess profession followed up by high quality for train training for teachers once they've actually started work.
james whale (PS3DB) [306] The problem there is that graduates are so terribly boring and uninteresting people basically aren't they that they find it difficult to impart their er
Noel (PS3DG) [...]
james whale (PS3DB) [307] You would?
Noel (PS3DG) [308] I would yes.
james whale (PS3DB) [309] You're a graduate.
Noel (PS3DG) [310] I am yes.
james whale (PS3DB) [311] Yeah I thought so anyway.
[312] Er I
Noel (PS3DG) [...]
james whale (PS3DB) [313] would have thought that graduates find it more difficult to impart knowledge to people than anybody else.
Noel (PS3DG) [314] No I'd I'd I don't I don't believe that that's the case erm
james whale (PS3DB) [315] Karen come to the studio please.
[316] Karen come to the studio please.
[317] Karen co sorry I just want to do something go on.
[318] ... Yeah so okay I'm I'm I'm
Noel (PS3DG) [319] I don't think that's the case.
james whale (PS3DB) [320] I'm I'm winding you up a little bit but no I mean there's a little method in this [...] .
[321] When are the teachers going to stop being political animals and get down to teaching rather than try to score points off the Government?
Noel (PS3DG) [322] Oh we're
james whale (PS3DB) [323] Cos anybody can score points off them I mean it's simple.
Noel (PS3DG) [324] We we well we'd love to be able to get get on with our job and er wi with far less interference than we receive at the moment but er when government insists on er on interfering to the extent it does an and there have been well I've been reading recently so something like five hundred new powers the Education Secretary has given himself in the in over the last last few years.
james whale (PS3DB) [325] Well he's not going to be there for ever.
Noel (PS3DG) [326] Decisions are made decisions are made erm there that we and we have to live with the consequences of them.
[327] If they affect education then it's our responsibility to speak up about them.
james whale (PS3DB) [328] You see I I think er er probably one of the best erm Ministers of er of er Education that er has been for quite some considerable time and I bet you throw your hands up in horror when I say this you will totally disagree and I'm talking here cos his name's just slipped [laughing] out of my mind [] .
[329] Who was tha who was that oh for goodness sake tall thin gaunt looking man, always had to have about fifteen spoonfuls of sugar in his coffee whenever I met him?
Noel (PS3DG) [330] S Sir Keith Joseph?
james whale (PS3DB) [331] Er you knew you see Sir Keith Joseph.
[332] Now I I remember talking to him for hours once on a programme about education [...] and this was when he first said what we want is teachers to be accountable.
[333] And I'm a great believer in everybody should be accountable right?
Noel (PS3DG) [334] Yes.
[335] We well I've no objections to that to that at all.
james whale (PS3DB) [336] No none of you do now but when he first suggested it everyone was up in arms and he poor old soul I remembered he said, I've had enough change I I believe in this I I've I've tried I'm too old now [sniff] and out he walked.
[337] Is there a chocolate machine in the building?
[338] And off he went.
[339] He was addicted to chocolate.
Noel (PS3DG) [340] I I I think erm a lot of teachers would now look back on those days with er a certain fondness now bearing in mind what's what's happened since and the the the succession of education secretaries we've had since since then I mean had the only one in recent years who I would say has attempted a genuine dialogue with the teachers and [...] tried to do something constructive is John McGregor.
james whale (PS3DB) [341] So when, and I would agree with you again, so when are the teachers going to be accountable, when is somebody who is a bad teacher and heck there are quite a few of them, you know it only takes a couple in every school to make it difficult for the rest, going to be got rid of you know you are not up to the mark out.
Noel (PS3DG) [342] There there are systems in place in schools already for that and there always have been.
james whale (PS3DB) [343] You jest with me now come on we're we're we're being serious Noel if you are a teacher it is almost impossible to sack you.
[344] Almost totally impossible.
Noel (PS3DG) [345] That's simply not true.
[346] There there are disciplinary procedures in in all schools erm which are there to be used.
james whale (PS3DB) [347] Why are they never used then?
[348] Are all teachers too good to be sacked because it is [...] it is as rare as erm teeth in chickens.
Noel (PS3DG) [349] I think it's I think it's very easy to er to ex exaggerate the problem [...] to take one anecdotal evidence of of one about one or two cases and maybe about one or two people and say this is a major problem in every school. [...]
james whale (PS3DB) [350] Let me put it this way to you Noel
Noel (PS3DG) [351] I don't think it is.
james whale (PS3DB) [352] Let me put it to you this way you know as well as I do people who really ought to be doing something else other than teaching.
[353] You know that as well as I do and those people don't seem to be given the encouragement to move on to another profession.
Noel (PS3DG) [354] I I
james whale (PS3DB) [355] Some are some are promoted to head teachers I know and I knew you were going to say that.
Noel (PS3DG) [356] I wasn't going to say [laughing] that no [] .
[357] Erm no I I honestly don't think that er that the the problem is as big as as big as you you say it is and I I think the the structures are there to deal with that and if if people had you know if people used them then they would they would work and they [...] from time to time that they are used and you know it it is not impossible to get rid of rid of a teacher in in the way you are suggesting.
james whale (PS3DB) [358] Okay Noel thank you for your er your time and being a good sport this afternoon and I hear you have a little one you had better go back and sort things out.
Noel (PS3DG) [359] That's right.

[385] Is the weather as bad as people keep telling me because it was Okay when I drove in this morning.
Rita (PS3DH) [386] No it's not it's it's quite mild, there's no frost on the ground it's all gone.
james whale (PS3DB) [387] So what's this about snow at Thirsk?
Rita (PS3DH) [388] Well they can keep it we don't want it.
james whale (PS3DB) [389] Bit strange in Thirsk anyway I thought.

Rita (PS3DH) [391] Probably.
[392] Yeah it's it's actually it's not too bad it's a bit misty it's a bid hazy erm slight wind but it's not bad.

Rita (PS3DH) [404] Well Karen said that if I won the competition she'd ring back.
james whale (PS3DB) [405] Mm and then you thought, Oh God I've done it now .
Rita (PS3DH) [406] But I had to speak to you you see and I dialled you while you actually said on the air that anyone that won had to speak to you and said to Karen look if you ring back I'll [laughing] put the answer phone on [] .
james whale (PS3DB) [407] I know I thought that was good because then everybody puts the phone down you see and they all think they're going to be terribly clever.
Rita (PS3DH) [408] Yes I think it depends on what kind of a message you actually have on your recorder to start off with.
james whale (PS3DB) [409] Is your's rude.
Rita (PS3DH) [410] No it just says that it's basically to the effect of that the answering machine is quite reliable
james whale (PS3DB) [411] I [...] I
Rita (PS3DH) [412] and if you leave a message it will be dealt with and people do leave a message, whereas before when it just said I'm sorry I'm not available they didn't they just put the phone down.
james whale (PS3DB) [413] I usually leave a message saying I'm having sex at the moment ring back in about three seconds.
Rita (PS3DH) [414] [laughing] And do they? []
james whale (PS3DB) [415] Sometimes sometimes they never ring back at all ever. [laugh]
