As a proud patron of Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity Alfie Moore was delighted to interview Sir Vince Cable, the next potential leader of the Liberal Democrat party, at an evening for business leaders in Sheffield this week.
Sir Vince, who’s wife sadly died due to cancer, generously took time out from his leadership campaign to help promote the Weston Park Cancer Charity’s 2020 For Business Appeal. WP2020 aims to get 200 business across the Sheffield City region to each donate £5000 towards a £1 million goal. The monies will be used to provide additional services to help improve the lives of local cancer patients.
We’re delighted that Gerry Northam, veteran BBC radio presenter and investigative journalist, has included IT’S A FAIR COP in his pick of the best of this week’s BBC Radio.
The episode selected was ‘Collision Decision’, the last in the current series, in which Alfie invited the audience to participate in another real-life crime from his police case book which involved the most broken law in Britain – The Road Traffic Act 1988. This incident tested Alfie’s impartiality, fairness and powers of discretion to the limit……. Turns out the audience of police-officers-for-the-day had very different, and often hilarious, views on the actions that they would have taken.
The episodes of this series of IT’S A FAIR COP will be available on the BBC iPlayer for the next few weeks.
Veteran BBC presenter John Waite has selected Alfie Moore’s comedy IT’S A FAIR COP for inclusion in his choice of BBC Radio highlights of the week.
‘Pick of the Week’ will air at 6.30pm on Sunday 11th June and will then be available to listen again on the BBC iPlayer.
The IT’S A FAIR COP episode included is ‘Punching Judy’ – where Alfie shared another real-life policing dilemma from his case book in which he himself became the victim of assault. As the case unfolded, the audience, who had been ‘sworn in as cops’ for the duration of the show, were challenged to say what they would have done – with often hilarious results.
The next episode of IT’S A FAIR COP, Cedric the Gnome, will be back on Wednesday 14th June at 11.30am. This, and all the episodes in the current series, will then be available to listen again on the BBC iPlayer.
