8pm GMT tonight, on BBC Radio 4 -

"20:00 The Archive Hour
One for the Boys - the Story of Brooklands

Astley Jones takes a nostalgic trip to the heyday of Brooklands, the world's first purpose built motor racing circuit and birthplace of British aviation, with a social scene that rivalled Ascot and Henley. Famous voices from the past include John Cobb and Malcolm Campbell and pioneer aviator A.V. Roe, and there is also unknown Poppy Slark who spent her wartime nights stitching together the shot up wings of returning Wellington Bombers and Gerry Gleason, boy scout lap scorer in the 1930s."
