Produced by Kay Hutchison and Richard Dikstra from Belle Media, the programme includes interviews with Paul Merrington and Sereny Damon from the Dartmouth Steam Railway and River Boat Company, as well as with John Megoran from the Paddle Steamer Kingswear Castle Trust, and sets out KC’s place in the history of excursion paddle steamers, why she needs a rebuild and her long term future running on the River Dart when this is complete. The programme will also go out on regional radio networks
