Short sound clips from an interview with Betty Starkey on the sale of

Burton Bradstock in the 1950's to 1970's

Interview by Rob & June Fox - Sound editing by Humphrey Walwyn


Note: Each clip has two versions - MP3 the standard, but this takes longer to download, or

RealAudio which is much faster to download, but with a slight, but unnoticable reduction in quality.
