Reynold recollects his memories from 1954, when he and his peers from the grammar school took part in recording promotional and educational material on WGC. They were tasked of creating a recording that would capture what Welwyn is as a city and be interesting to the younger generations by the BBC Light Programme. Plot contained a story of aliens landing in the city and WGC citizens taking them on a tour, actress Flora Robson and the manager of the Gosling Stadium, Rich Gosling. Recordings were made in BBC offices in London and Reynold doesn’t know of any existing copies.
