No argument

Enraged by abuse from opponents at a football match in Dulwich, south-east London, last December, Owen Marriott drove home and picked up a machete and a loaded gun, an Old Bailey judge heard. But he was seen and the police were called. Marriott, 31, admitted possessing a firearm without a certificate and having an offensive weapon. He said his problem was, 'I don't argue'. Sentence was adjourned.

COLLECTING / Mr Wells's mission to explain: If ever a sound were destined to become a museum piece, it is that of BBC medium wave. John Windsor is almost persuaded by a man determined to preserve it - along with 1,000 vintage radios that share his home

IN A QUIET street in Dulwich, south London, in the house where he was born, Gerald Wells twiddles a moulded Bakelite knob and the sound of times past wafts into his parlour. Round and resonant and reassuring, this is the BBC as heard by grandfather in the days of Tommy Handley, ITMA, Uncle Mac and that charming announcer Mr Hibberd, who used to say, 'Goodnight everybody. Goodnight.'

Travel: Family fortunes

STILL more advice from readers on taking a holiday with another family (The Traveller, 24 July and 7 August). Corinda M Carnelley of Dulwich, south London, says she has taken two successful gite holidays with friends and one 'disastrous' one (of which I should like to hear more). 'The most important thing is personal space. Make sure that everyone has space in which to do their own thing, keep their seaweed collection, and where it won't be touched or interfered with.' (Why on earth would you want to go on holiday with anybody who collects seaweed?)
