Health issues are rarely out of the news. Recently we celebrated the birth of the national Health Service in 1948. In Gloucester, Dr Jeremy Barnes was a city GP for many years and tonight he will recall some of the issues which have confronted him and the NHS during his years in practice.

The Battle of Tewkesbury in 1471 was a resounding victory for the Yorkist Edward IV in the Wars of the Roses. All could have been different had Gloucester opened its gates and allowed the Lancastrian forces to reach South Wales. Tonight we hear about the Tewkesbury battle from battlefield guide Richard Goddard.
