New Ideas - Week 49
PRODUCER: Roland Pease PRESENTER: Alun Lewis
DATE OF 1ST TRANSMISSION: Sunday 1st December 1996
Alun Lewis tries out a new razor which looks like an electric razor, sounds like an electric razor, and trims like an electric razor, but isn't an electric razor. It's a take-anywhere shave that's driven by a flywheel, and all it takes is a pull on a string to get it going.

Thank you Old Git, I have been looking for BBC on the Internet for ages.
I have loved their programming! I use to work for a local PBS Station -- We recorded Letter From America down from the satellite.
The info was really appreciated.
