[237] [reading] Kent police say at least ten people have been killed and a further two are believed to have died in a coach crash on the M two near the Faversham turn-off.
[238] The coach carrying forty four American tourists on a day trip to Canterbury collided with a van and plunged down an embankment.
[239] Dozens of other people were injured. []
[240] From the scene, Martin reports.
Teresa (PS38A) [241] The stricken coach now stands on the hard shoulder of the M two having been lifted up the embankment by a heavy crane.
[242] When the vehicle was righted the full horror of this accident became clear.
[243] Rescuers found ten bodies.
[244] At the height of the rescue operation up to forty five firemen equipped with heavy lifting gear battled to free the injured.
[245] Those that survived the crash were ferried to the Kent and Canterbury Hospital in a fleet of ambulances.
[246] Police accident investigators are at the scene trying to piece together why a day trip to Canterbury and Leeds Castle near Maidstone for a group of American tourists ended in tragedy.
[247] The M two motorway remains closed between junctions five and six and is not expected to reopen for several hours.
Sue (PS389) [248] [reading] Eye witness Richard was driving behind the coach when the accident happened.

[254] There's been another jobs blow in Nottinghamshire with the news that Staythorpe Power Station is to close with the loss of 124 posts.

[256] The Sherwood MP says thousands more generating jobs will be lost in the next five years. []
[257] Nigel reports.
(PS38C) [258] say the increase in gas-fired power stations means traditional coal ones are becoming surplus to requirements.
[259] Production will stop at Staythorpe at the end of March next year.
[260] say they're not worried by the decision.
[261] Coal from Welbeck is used at Staythorpe but the Coal Board say its closure has already been taken into account.
[262] Paddy the Sherwood MP is less optimistic.
[263] He predicts more job losses which will hit the coal industry hard.
(PS38D) [264] There are twenty six er coal-fired power stations now, I believe they'll be down to ten within the next three years, and I think in the electricity generating industry another ten thousand jobs could go.
(PS38C) [265] He's also sceptical about the construction of a gas-fired power station at Staythorpe.
[266] He says the government might have given approval but questions whether are committed to bringing a new Nottinghamshire power station on stream.

[273] Hospital authorities are warning the public not to approach the man but they're refusing to say anything about his background.

(PS38F) [521] Yes Dennis.
(PS38F) [522] Yes Henry.
(PS38F) [523] Hello.
(PS38F) [524] Hello.
(PS38F) [525] [...] I want to speak to you about this street lighting.
(PS38F) [526] Street lighting?
(PS38F) [527] Yes.
[528] W see we we er I live in a cul-de-sac, Allenton.
(PS38F) [529] Yes.
(PS38F) [530] Street, and the bottom lamp has been out now for six weeks.
(PS38F) [531] Yeah.
(PS38F) [532] Six weeks.
(PS38F) [533] Have you told 'em?
(PS38F) [534] Pardon?
(PS38F) [535] Have you told them?
[536] Have you told the authorities?
(PS38F) [537] Yes, we've been [...] the channels, been been right through to street lighting itself
(PS38F) [538] Yeah, actually it's Highways, isn't it?
[539] Highways Department.
(PS38F) [540] [...] .
[541] No i no [...] can't understand this,be be been to the City Council, Highways Council and now we we've ended up with the erm Electricity Board.
[542] Sh I rang er my lo local councillor an h he looked into it,an he said, er it's in the hands now of the Electricity Board.
[543] Now you see we're being modernized in this area, now they're old steel houses in Allenton, about five hundred of 'em [...]
(PS38F) [544] Yeah.
(PS38F) [545] Now they've been digging up the garden to make a channel for all electricity to go underground you see.
[546] So something happened there at that house, we told 'em the house number, where the lamp's situated, we gave 'em all the information they they need but we still can't get any response.
[547] We've all been telephoning [...] there's about twelve of us it effects.
[548] I've made about si six calls.
[549] You can't get anybody to come down to see about it.
(PS38F) [550] I'm surprised that er call to the local councillor didn't work.
(PS38F) [551] Yes, I've called the local council.
(PS38F) [552] I'm surprised that one didn't work because I mean they're usually hot on it, you know they know where to go and and usually there's action taken if a councillor takes up the cause.
(PS38F) [553] Yeah.
(PS38F) [554] Is it causing, is there any danger?
(PS38F) [555] Pardon?
(PS38F) [556] Is there danger with the light off?
(PS38F) [557] Well no oh yes it is danger , you see now see now [...] the path around here,th they're laying a new new path.
[558] Cos it wanted laying er now they've put the rough stuff down but when they put it down they left er about say inch er drop you know so er if you can't see where you're walking, especially strangers they're gonna tipple over.
[559] They're gonna trip up you see.
[560] Cos we know it's there, so we we miss it.
(PS38F) [561] Mm.
(PS38F) [562] But six weeks without a lamp it seems ridiculous doesn't it?
(PS38F) [563] Mm.
(PS38F) [564] Because we we run a a neighbourhood watch scheme.
[565] And how can we run our do our job like that without a lamp?
[566] There's only about three in the street.
[567] Now one one of those at the top of the street where er where the er [...] is, [...] you can say virtually th about one one lamp in the street.
(PS38F) [568] Well what can we do?
(PS38F) [569] How how do we go on now, who do we call now, [...] anybody interested in the job.
(PS38F) [570] Erm, well Allenton.
(PS38F) [571] Yeah.
(PS38F) [572] All we can ask is if there's a councillor for Allenton listening to us, if they could get in touch and we'll put them in touch with you and see if we can start it all over again Henry.
[573] I do know that street lighting is the very devil, cos it can come under about half a dozen different departments, it can come under Highways,
(PS38F) [574] Yes.
(PS38F) [575] but it can also come under Electricity Board if it's a failure of the electricity.
(PS38F) [576] Yes you're quite right there because part of the street, [...] the pavement and [...] hard standing in the gardens for the cars which was a very good idea, now there's [...] the city have done two thirds of that and then when they came to the end of the er cul-de- sac,
(PS38F) [577] Mm.
(PS38F) [...]
(PS38F) [578] But as you say you know with this Neighbourhood Watch scheme you do need the lighting on properly don't you?
(PS38F) [579] Yeah we do we can't do our job without.
(PS38F) [580] But is it working this Neighbourhood Scheme?
[581] Neighbourhood Watch Scheme?
(PS38F) [582] Yeah.
(PS38F) [583] Have you have you ever seen anybody acting in a suspicious manner?
(PS38F) [584] Oh not yet, [...]
(PS38F) [585] Apart apart from you of course?
(PS38F) [586] No no I I ca can see er most of [...] cos I'm I'm in the area where the er lamps sh when the lamps are alight,
(PS38F) [587] Yeah
(PS38F) [588] I can see anyone w lurking around you see.
(PS38F) [589] Oh I see.
(PS38F) [590] But with a lamp out well we can't tell whether they're no-gooders, neighbours or what.
[591] You see we can't tell.
(PS38F) [592] Alright okay.
[593] Well if th if there's somebody whose listening in the Derby area who can help us with a street lamp that's out and it's rather important that it get put on, and it's been out for six weeks now

[596] Alright.
[597] Anybody calls Henry we'll put 'em through to you.

Trudy (PS38G) [832] You know you're getting me a name for [laughing] myself [] and there might be somebody listening you [laughing] never know [] .
(PS38F) [833] Well if there is this time maybe it'll work.
Trudy (PS38G) [834] Wh
(PS38F) [835] Go on n what do you want for Bosnia.
Trudy (PS38G) [836] Right Dennis n, tins of food, things like ham, fish, beans, anything tinned, packets of dried food, dried milk oh er dried herbs, jars jars of jam, marmalade anything that'll keep, herbs and spices, games for the children and I think I said Monday, they needn't be new but ones that ne ones that do not need batteries.
[837] They can't get hold of batteries.
(PS38F) [838] And then you're gonna take 'em into Derbyshire and then they're gonna go to Bosnia fairly quickly.
Trudy (PS38G) [839] They're going to be collected alright I'm gonna meet them halfway actually between here and Derbyshire erm at the end of November beginning of December and they are actually going, the last lorry leaves Derbyshire on the tenth of [tape change]
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [840] [...] what a time I had on that [...] , it was wonderful.
(PS38F) [841] That's right.
[842] And I remember at the time, I was chasing you over a most ridiculous national press story that Emlyn didn't like the idea of you a pop singer appearing in one of his classics.
[843] It was all a manufactured story it
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [...]
(PS38F) [844] was all a load of nonsense and you've certainly proved over the last twenty five years how ridiculous whoever started that story was.
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [845] Well it was a good story I suppose.
[846] Yeah having worked in newspapers er for two or three years I n I now know that the er what you look, well I didn't look for cos I was on the business page, what people look for is a good story and it doesn't
(PS38F) [...]
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [847] necessarily relate to what's going on.
(PS38F) [848] Yeah [...] you you you sort of set off several legends in your lifetime Adam erm le let's just er either destroy or establish one legend.
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [849] Go on then.
(PS38F) [850] That you have a table in a very posh hotel in London and you run your business from that table.
[851] How true is that?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [852] Well I used to run my business from the teashop in and I ha they put phones and everything in for at the corner table.
[853] Er but when they changed the room round I moved to the because and I became a director of the for a while fo three f four years something like that.
[854] Erm but I've had to give it all up because I'm too busy, so I don't run it from anywhere now, but for the last er four or five years it's been from the Hotel.
(PS38F) [855] You actually had a table at the Hotel?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [856] Yeah.
(PS38F) [857] Why didn't you have an office, a plush office somewhere?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [858] Well I don't like office , I love hotels and I think having meetings in a hotel's more civilized than sitting in an office.
(PS38F) [859] But you got people staring at you, you got people s coming up to you and saying, didn't you used to be Adam Faith?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [860] [...] that's alright, I don't mind that.
[861] I'm f used to that now after a few years.
(PS38F) [862] The legitimate er side of Adam Faith did begin didn't it with [...] ?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [863] [...] was my first stage play that I ever did.
(PS38F) [864] With Dame Sybil ,
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [865] Yeah.
(PS38F) [866] Sir Lewis
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [867] Absolutely.
(PS38F) [868] What they were like towards you?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [869] Dame Sybil was the most gracious, helpful, generous woman you can ever ask to work with, you know, you'd expect me to say that anyway, I'm not gonna say anything else er but in her case it really was true.
[870] She was er I mean was a pop s ex pop singer, I'd only just stopped singing a few weeks before I started to work with Sybil and she could not have been more gracious and generous in helping me get through it.
[871] She was wonderful.
(PS38F) [872] You done some great stuff in the acting world haven't you, I mean you must be very proud of some of the stuff .
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [873] I've had some marvellous parts to play, yeah.
[874] Budgie was a great part and I loved playing Frank Carver in Love Hurts erm and I didn't when when I was asked to do i , well w actually i it wasn't a series, the writers and I were put together by a man called Alan who's now my partner in Alfie as well he's and he asked me why wasn't I working and would he would I mind being put together with the two writers.
[875] He arranged all that and out of the conversation at the er out came Love Hurts.
[876] And I never r expected it to be anything like the end result, I mean the reaction to it's been fantastic in the last two years.
(PS38F) [877] As I said we can talk about half a dozen Adam Faiths.
[878] The pop singer is interesting and er l er we've got a record,i it could be The Best of Adam Faith and I think every track is practically worn out.
[879] They really were superb commercial happy songs weren't they?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [880] Well you know it was one of those happy combinations of Johnny writing them, John coming with those fresh arrangements and me sort of the naivety and the joy of being in the business, it was so exciting and happy that it was one of those lucky things where the combination of the three of us worked.
(PS38F) [881] [...] that about twenty songs on the L P we've got and I think they all sold a million
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [882] Ah they were all big sellers
(PS38F) [883] or more .
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [884] they were and they were all hits and it was a great period.
(PS38F) [885] And nobody ever said, [mimicking] baby [] like you did .
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [886] [...] yeah it was it was er you know it's it's er just one of those happy things in life where everything seemed to work great.
(PS38F) [887] But why did you stop?
[888] Why did you stop singing that way ?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [889] Well because I thought that the hits were coming to an end and I didn't want to become an all-round entertainer, I wasn't suited to it, I w I didn't have any feeling for all-round entertaining.
[890] I liked it when I was a pop singer and girls were screaming and it was er mad and exciting.
[891] I didn't ever relish the thought of becoming a sort of geriatric performer, going around clubs and summer seasons.
[892] Er I'd always wanted to act even as a kid of fifteen sixteen er and I got into singing before I went into acting and so acting s see that seemed to be a good period to break my life and start again. [...]
(PS38F) [893] But you must you must have been asked dozens of times to go back into the pop concert field?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [894] I have, I've been asked a lot in the last twenty odd years and it's only just recently that I've seriously considered it, which is why I've made this new album, Midnight Postcards.
[895] Erm and that's really been coming on for about five years.
[896] A friend of mine Dave who wrote half the album with me and produced the album has been on at me for five years, come on let's make an album, let's make an album, let's make an album, making a, let's make an album er and a few record companies have come on and they've always wanted me to do an album like maybe, let's prepackage old sixties' songs and revise them, or let's do love themes from T V shows and [...] which would never have interested me, so I said to Dave, you know when a record company comes with an offer to make an album, to do the album I wanna do then we'll do one.
[897] And came this year and said, come on do this album.
(PS38F) [898] It sounds as though y you you weren't heavily managed as a pop singer.
[899] It sounds as though you did the things you wanted to do.
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [900] Yeah well I've always done that, you know for good or worse.
[901] Er I've always er, I don't think I e I b th whenever I've been unhappy with work it's been work that I've allowed myself to do for ulterior motives, for money or whatever I m The things I've done er even th the things that have been unsuccessful th if I've wanted to do them, I've been able to live with that.
(PS38F) [902] You do realize though that there must have been some people who were saddened by the fact you didn't continue your pop career?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [903] C I hope they're so saddened that they threw [...] now they'll go out and buy it.
(PS38F) [904] Alright but I mean,ge genuinely er
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [905] Yeah I genuinely look all I can say about this new album is if I'd have continued recording for the last twenty odd years and had a sustained recording career like Cliff continued singing, this would have been the album that I would've ended up doing anyway.
[906] So in a sense, although I haven't recorded in the meantime, I st I still would have ended up in the same place.
[907] Cos this is the album of music the sort of music I would wanna listen to and I like s performing.
(PS38F) [908] How did Adam Faith the businessman happen?
[909] That corner at the Hotel?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [910] Well er ha you know I found myself after Budgie managing a singer called Leo and that led to a lot of interesting business and getting involved an , and I sort of forgot Adam Faith for ten years and just got diverted really.
[911] And I'd had a car crash and it was quite a relief not to have to worry about performing.
[912] And I sort of started to get itchy feet to come back and do things in the early eighties and that's when I went to Liverpool, I did a play with, I did Alfie with Alan who just directed the Commitments and er we went to a b and that really got me fired up to start again, and I sort of did some theatre stuff through the bits and pieces through the eighties until Love Hurts came.
[913] I turned down a couple of T V series cos I didn't feel I was right for them.
[914] And just Love Hurts just seemed to fit, just right like a glove, I wanted to do it.
[915] So when the boys and I met and they said over tea I th , well why don't we do something about a love affair, it just seemed right.
[916] And fortunately it's worked out well.
(PS38F) [917] Are you ever surprised at how good you are, particularly at acting?
[918] Remember that basically you were a pop singer, basically .
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [919] Yes.
[920] Erm I'm always overjoyed when people say things like that to me, that you've just said, er but I think I understand acting more than I understand anything in the world.
[921] And I have a passion for acting and the truth of acting which is like life to me.
[922] And if it if it I'm more surprised about if it's successful.
[923] Er I'm not surprised if it turns out and people think it's good cos I spend when I'm in the part it becomes my life so I don't really judge it in terms of good or bad, I just it becomes like breathing.
[924] I know it sounds a bit actorish and pretentious to say that but it's a it's a hundred and ten per cent passion.
[925] I cut my other life off real life off and become that person and I'm at my happiest when I'm submerged in another character doing it.
[926] I lo I love the commitment of it, the total hundred per cent commitment of acting.
[927] And in a way that's how I approached this album, it's how I will approach Alfie when we come you know it's it's a wonderful passion.
[928] And I missed that in the seventies and eighties, and my wife said you know you're mad, towards the late eighties she told me off, she said you're mad, you'll spend your life looking for something that you've already got, for god's sake just concentrate on what you r are, you're an actor, do that, perform.
(PS38F) [929] When you were
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [930] And it was a [...] you know it was a great happiness and release to shed a million other activities and [...] flying in all directions thinking the acting wasn't enough and I wasn't enough for acting.
[931] And this last two or three years I've s I've become to realize that how important acting and performing is to me, and h how much more there is to do in it.
(PS38F) [932] But when you were a pop singer were you happy as a pop singer?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [933] I was happy as pop singer, the last couple of years I wasn't happy when I ceased to be a pop singer and I was er headed on a road of being an entertainer.
[934] I could not be happy doing that, but as a pop singer I was in my element, because really all I d I didn't even think of it as singing, I thought of it, when I performed on stage as a pop singer I just thought of of it really of making love to the audience.
[935] That's all I though of it about, I saw it as a really as er each stage performance was like an orgasm.
[936] Just like girls were there, I was there and it was making love, that's all I saw it as.
[937] And it was a,whe when it then became more respectable, I lost interest in it.
(PS38F) [938] But gosh they were tuneful songs weren't they?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [939] They were fabulous songs, they were great.
[940] You know and I and I've only recently really come to terms with how much tha those early songs were part of people's upbringing and because of Love Hurts and everything people come up to me a lot in the street and we talk about the sixties and everything.
[941] And you realize that maybe they made love first time to What Do You Want, they had their first kid to Poor Me, they they bought their first house to Someone Else's Baby, I mean there's fantastic memories, and that carries o , and I carry all that now.
[942] And for years I sort of just dismissed it as a sort of thing I did in my past.
[943] Er maybe it's just gotta do with maturing and growing up, I think I've started to grow up finally.
(PS38F) [944] Th the strange thing is about many of those songs, the shortness of them.
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [945] Yeah they were so short
(PS38F) [946] I mean
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [947] What Do You Want you know was the shortest number one in history.
[948] One
(PS38F) [949] [laughing] Yeah. []
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [950] thirty two or something.
[951] And Tim told me [...] it was in the Guinness Book of Records.
[952] This is the shortest number one.
(PS38F) [953] Just that one
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [954] Most cost effective number one ever recorded.
(PS38F) [955] If you think about it Adam, one minute thirty two seconds.
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [956] It's remarkable.
(PS38F) [957] And it becomes number one, and it makes a lot of money for everybody and it makes everybody hum and it makes everybody toe tap
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [958] Yeah.
(PS38F) [959] one minute thirty two seconds .
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [960] I know.
[961] From Micky who's one of the most successful record pro producers that has ever been, he said if you haven't got an audience in the first thirty seconds you ain't got the audience.
(PS38F) [962] Yeah but you usually
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [...]
(PS38F) [963] do it in ten seconds.
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [964] Yeah.
[965] Yeah, so you'd be if you're making records you'd better made it count early on.
[966] There re is a lot of truth in that.
(PS38F) [967] Yeah.
[968] And they were really just yours.
[969] You didn't seem to copy anybody, er
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [...]
(PS38F) [970] a lot of people copied you of course, but you
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [971] Well I didn't know anything about any [...] none of us knew anything about anybody in those days, cos it was so early on in the, and we weren't, I was influenced more by people like blues er black blues singers, American blues singers like Muddy and Lightning , all those old blues, [...] , er they were the heroes for me that I grew up with playing skiffle and and then Lonnie became my first Lonnie became by first hero and I er modelled a lot of my early singing on Lonnie.
[972] And then when I came to What Do You Want it was like an whole new world had opened up to me.
[973] It's exciting.
(PS38F) [974] Couldn't ha taken too long to learn at one minute thirty two seconds and
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [975] No.
(PS38F) [976] two minutes twelve seconds could they ?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [977] [...] [laugh] It didn't take a lot of learning [...] .
(PS38F) [978] But you had to get every word right of course.
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [979] Yeah.
[980] There weren't many words in one minute thirty two seconds .
(PS38F) [981] No.
[982] Night Must Fall, the first er the first play that you did,w was it er were there was there any difficulty at all?
[983] I mean was there any difficulty learning lines, was there any difficulty walking on stage, acting the part, being an actor, because Adam Faith the pop singer may have brought them in but then he was forgotten on stage wasn't he ?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [984] Yeah.
[985] Well I think I had more problems when I was making films as a pop singer, because I was still pop singing as well and it was difficult to disassociate the two.
[986] When I decided to cut myself off totally and become an actor, it started to get easier.
[987] And that four years in rep, I sort of basically learn , I learnt the basics of the trade.
[988] And I think if any performers know any [...] where they may find problems is if they're still very much involved in the music industry, because it becomes a sort of er a diversionary activity.
[989] It's a full time commitment er t and you if you are very if if you are er like say it's so all the time, it's difficult for her then to cease to be that, to be somebody else.
[990] So she would have to she was to given up her career in acting, she may have to take a view and give up singing totally for a while.
[991] Just so she can change her perception of it all.
[992] You see it's quite difficult.
(PS38F) [993] So you seem to cut yourself off from anything you've done before to concentrate on what
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [994] Yeah.
(PS38F) [995] you're doing and yet you're doing this tour of Alfie, which is obviously very important to us in the
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [996] Yeah.
(PS38F) [997] region, er a and you've produced this er music thing, so the very thing you you say y you've got this album and you're doing your acting bit.
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [998] Yeah, I'm doing both in [...] .
[999] Er now I think that's er that's a lot to do with experience.
[1000] I think because I was so inexperienced in the sixties, er I don't think I could have coped with doing two things.
[1001] As you get older and you get more experienced of it you know you y you begin to realize that, I mean this album, I've done this album and I haven , I've haven't just sung on this album and made sounds, which is what I did with What Do You Want, I've sung on this album and said something.
[1002] So in a way it's not unlike working on the stage in a play.
[1003] Er because having written half the songs as well, the lyrics all mean something so I may as well have spoken them as sung them.
(PS38F) [1004] Now one of the things th we find that when we play an Adam Faith record, we tend to be singing it for the rest of the day you know, like What Do You Want
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [...]
(PS38F) [1005] don't start me on that, I'll be doing it in about two hours' time.
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [laugh]
(PS38F) [1006] Do you?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1007] Do I play my old songs ?
(PS38F) [1008] Do you no do you sing to yourself?
[1009] Do you sing those those, I still call 'em fabulous songs?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1010] Yeah.
[1011] No I don't sing I don't sing those songs.
(PS38F) [1012] You don't sing to yourself What Do You Want?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1013] No.
[1014] I don't.
(PS38F) [1015] Fool Me.
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1016] No I don't.
(PS38F) [1017] Someone Else's Baby?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1018] No I sing the new album.
[1019] It's the first time I've actually, well cos I haven't sung for a long time.
[1020] But this new album, er I've become er obsessed by it because I'm so excited, er cos I think it's actually some of the best work I've ever done.
[1021] Acting or singing.
[1022] So
(PS38F) [1023] Do you have to be so enthusiastic about everything you do?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1024] Er w is it is it a bore?
(PS38F) [1025] It's lovely no, it's it's
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1026] Er
(PS38F) [1027] it's it's good to hear.
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1028] Because it's so exciting.
[1029] You know I pl I I started this album really I started writing it while I was doing Love Hurts in Israel and Zoe would s sort of catch in the caravan, what the hell are you doing now, you know I was writing lyrics and thi , and I started to get keyed into this album just before I finished Love Hurts.
[1030] And I had a couple of months making it and god, it was such a wonderful time I had and writing the lyrics and saying things about love and feelings that have meant something to me over the years.
[1031] Er then I can't help getting enthusiastic about it.
(PS38F) [1032] Alright.
[1033] Let's talk about Alfie.
[1034] Erm is it the film on stage?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1035] No, it's definitely not the film on stage.
[1036] Er Mike said in his autobiography that when they got the play and converted it to film, they changed the age of the character for a start, cos in the play it was written in the late fifties by Bill and it was written for a man approaching his forties.
[1037] Well in the fifties, forty years of age was hugely old, I mean my dad at forty when I remember back was like a really old man at forty in those days.
[1038] And so when they changed the character to be twenty five in the film which w Mi Mike 's age, it totally changed the piece, totally and completely changed the piece.
[1039] And it became er I think more people's perception of it now is that it's like a bloke bonking birds on stage, it's nothing like that.
[1040] It's about really the tragedy of a man who's too old to change and too stupid to realize he needs to.
(PS38F) [1041] A character part for you.
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1042] Oh wow, a character part for me.
[1043] It's a wonderful part, [laugh] it's a great part.
[1044] And it's a it's an a wonderful play to go and watch.
[1045] I mean I sometimes when I'm performing on stage [...] and people are laughing so much in the audience I think god, you know why can't I go and sit in the audience and watch this, they're laughing so much.
[1046] And in the last twenty minutes of the play they get a emotional kick in the stomach and it's gut wrenching.
[1047] And the way Bill writes about the tragedy of one of the women in the play is just remarkable.
[1048] It's a wonderful play.
(PS38F) [1049] Does it move you playing it?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1050] It moves me playing it and it upsets me playing it, it's very upsetting to play Alfie, because A he's such a disastrous man as a person d you know you think oh god I don't really wanna be playing this man for sixteen weeks but the part is so wonderful and the play is so rich that you can't help s sort of s submitting to it and putting yourself in the position of being a masochist I suppose.
(PS38F) [1051] The audience go out then very moved?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1052] Yeah they go in and they're laughing they're l they're laughing like mad for so long and it's so funny.
[1053] And then they get this terrible jolt and er they come out with a totally different perception of what this play is than than they went in with.
[1054] It's a it's a grea it's a great play, I've seen it performed by other people and it's a great evening.
[1055] I don't say because I'm in it, it's just a wonderful play.
(PS38F) [1056] You're at a stage now in your career where surely you can choose whatever you want to do?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1057] Well I can choose what I don't want to do more than what I can do, that's easier to you know.
[1058] I can choose not to do things that don't excite me, but fortunately things are happening that do you know.
[1059] I mean I could choose not to do an album, but when they asked me to an album that was exciting to say yes.
[1060] I could choose not to do Alfie, but I wouldn't I'd never refuse to do Alfie, I'd like to be fifty years younger so I could play Alfie for another fifty years.
(PS38F) [1061] That's interesting.
[1062] So er how far ahead do you do you plan?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1063] Well I'm planned now until December next year.
[1064] Er I do a plug the alb of the album Midnight Postcards we call it, I'm plugging that now until Christmas, promoting that er on television and radio, and I er in between I go on a short holiday to Africa and then January I start Alfie until May, and then I think I'm gonna do a T V movie or a movie in June July, and then in end of July I go to America for four four till the end of November with Alfie.
[1065] We're gonna take Alfie to L A and do it in L A for three months.
(PS38F) [1066] Have you b played in America before?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1067] No never played never played in America.
[1068] No not in the theatre.
(PS38F) [1069] What about what about [...]
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1070] Well I did the odd movie bits in America, and er when I was a pop singer had a record in the charts in America [...] but never done a play there.
[1071] It'll be interesting.
[1072] It'll be interesting to see how Alfie of course works in America.
(PS38F) [1073] You're very intense on everything you do.
[1074] Intense about this new album, intense about Alfie, intense about about your life as well.
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1075] Yeah.
(PS38F) [1076] Er would you never appear in anything flippant, anything trivial?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1077] Ooh yeah, well I would er I would er ... I wouldn't appear in anything trivial, no I wouldn't [...] I wouldn't consciously wanna appear in anything trivial.
[1078] I wouldn't mind appearing in, I'd like you know one of the things I'd really love to do is a [...] er comedy.
[1079] Like a [...] .
[1080] The character I would've liked to have played more than anything else if it had ever been you know, if there was one going now would be Rigsby in Rising Damp.
[1081] I love that character and I would have loved to have played that character, but I don't think anybody [...] it for you [...]
(PS38F) [...]
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1082] take this album maybe the end of next year
(PS38F) [1083] But you do realize you would be lynched if you didn't do Poor Man,
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1084] I would do Poor Man all
(PS38F) [1085] Someone Else's
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1086] that of course I'd do What Do You Want.
[1087] Er because it would be stupid for me go on stage singing and not do a selection of all those songs that th they're the reason I'm here.
(PS38F) [1088] But er but it's changed hasn't it?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1089] [...] changed but life changes.
(PS38F) [1090] But you see they want you to hear, they want to hear you do all of your standard Adam Faith hits.
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1091] Yeah.
(PS38F) [1092] Erm but it's changed that you wouldn't get your clothes ripped off any more.
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1093] No.
(PS38F) [1094] Because that did happen to you didn't it?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1095] Yeah.
[1096] I liked that bit the best.
(PS38F) [1097] You like that bit?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1098] Yeah.
[1099] [laugh] I liked that.
[1100] When they stopped pulling my clothes off that's when I packed up singing.
(PS38F) [1101] Is that what it was?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1102] Yeah definitely .
(PS38F) [1103] Yeah.
[1104] Sounds as though it was very expensive because the clothes you wore must have been
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1105] It was worth it.
(PS38F) [1106] Was it?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1107] Believe me. [laugh]
(PS38F) [1108] Oh.
[1109] Oh.
[1110] So the thrill you get now is
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1111] Thrill I get now?
(PS38F) [1112] is having an audience there
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1113] Yeah.
(PS38F) [1114] watching you
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1115] Yeah.
(PS38F) [1116] and being moved by what you're interpreting on the stage?
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1117] Yeah.
[1118] Yeah and er look I think the process is that you do work and you feel passionate about it, you wanna do it the best you think you've done it as well as you can do it, and then you put it out in whatever form, in a T V series like Love Hurts or on stage like Alfie, or in an album like Midnight Postcards and you then just pray and hope that people want to listen to you, want to watch you, want to hear you.
[1119] That's what you pray for.
[1120] Because what's the point in doing no matter how good you think you're doing, what's the point of doing it for yourself in the living room, you want er everybody to listen to it.
[1121] You want that's what you're doing it for is hopefully so other people'll appreciate it.
(PS38F) [1122] Our special guest Adam Faith, he's in Alfie, which is at Nottingham's Theatre Royal on the twenty eighth of March next year and the box office has just opened so can actually er go there to see not just a performance I think, not just a play, but something of an event.

[1124] You you pick a track.
Unknown speaker (KGHPSUNK) [1125] Er well y I [...] pick one that might be too long for you so pick Roxy Roxy which I love. [music]

(PS38C) [1445] Well er we're a little bit perturbed here all the er shopkeepers and the people here in the heart of Newark, er it's been put out on er Nottingham Radio that er Newark is actually closed to people.
(PS38F) [1446] Eh?
(PS38C) [1447] Can you believe that? [...]
(PS38F) [1448] Mind you, mind you I went er through Newark the other day and I had to go round the mountains to get back on that road out to Lincoln.
(PS38C) [1449] Yeah.
(PS38F) [1450] With all the closures that there are.
(PS38C) [1451] Yes, getting through Newark er can be a bit of a problem because of that er huge roundabout they've dug up right in the centre, but er coming into Newark and going back out again is no problem whatsoever.
[1452] You know, parking here in Newark, there are plenty of parking spaces and all the shops are open and we're all ready to bustle but no one to bustle to.
(PS38F) [1453] Wh now what what do you say we're saying?
(PS38C) [1454] Yo you're saying that Newark is actually closed, don't go to Newark because er of the roadworks, it's er it's closed.
(PS38F) [1455] We never said that .
(PS38C) [1456] Yeah it's been given out on the radio today Dennis.
[1457] Or words to that effect.
(PS38F) [1458] Which programme has said that Newark was closed?
(PS38C) [1459] Oh I I can't pinpoint the actual programme, it's just er what people are telling me has been st er stated on Radio Nottingham.
(PS38F) [1460] I think we're warning about that er roundabout [...]
(PS38C) [1461] Yeah
(PS38F) [1462] I mean that is pretty horrendous [...]

[1472] We need you to tell people to come back into Newark, don't be afraid of the of the works.
(PS38F) [1473] Okay well

(PS38F) [1475] Alright let's get the message out then.
(PS38C) [1476] Yeah.
(PS38F) [1477] You're saying that there is no traffic problem in Newark,
(PS38C) [1478] Going through it er would be a problem, going through Newark actually going through you have to go round a system as you as you quite rightly said.
(PS38F) [1479] Right.
(PS38C) [1480] But coming in and going back out again is no problem, from any direction.
(PS38F) [1481] And parking?
(PS38C) [1482] Parking's fine.
[1483] Absolutely fine.
[1484] I mean normally er this morning for instance, normally I park on the big car park down near the the river there,
(PS38F) [1485] Yeah.
(PS38C) [1486] and er normally on a Wednesday morning that's quite full.
[1487] This morning there were three cars besides myself and that frightened me to death being a trader .

(PS38F) [1494] you out to Lincoln and so on
(PS38C) [1495] yeah yeah
(PS38F) [1496] has that made any difference to trade?
(PS38C) [1497] Er not not really because it doesn't sp stop the people coming into Newark that were coming anyway.
[1498] You know, it doesn't seem to have affected in that erm respect, no.

(PS38C) [1516] as you can appreciate, it's just what people are saying to me who who actually have come into Newark, they're
(PS38F) [1517] But is
(PS38C) [1518] saying oh we've warned er not to come in because of the roadworks.
(PS38F) [1519] But is that wh is that correct?
[1520] Major work continues in Newark town centre with the closure of part of in the
(PS38C) [1521] That's right.
(PS38F) [1522] Beesmarket Hill area of the town,
(PS38C) [1523] Yeah that's perfect [...]
