Arthur Heywood was a Gaffer at BBC Birmingham from the early/mid 1960s until the 1980s.
Arthur died on Feb 7, 2012.
Colleagues who remember him fondly left the following comments on the Pebble Mill Facebook page:
Jane McLean: ‘One of my very favourite people. Had an amazing trip to Hong Kong and China with him in the 80s. He bought enough furniture out there to furnish a house .. then had to pay at least twice as much to get it shipped back here.’
Carol Churchill: ‘How sad worked with Arthur on lots of dramas and spent many jolly evenings in pubs with him and crew.’
Lesley Weaver: ‘We were only talking about Arthur the other day. That’s very sad he was such a lovely man & adorably cheeky ! I agree Carol lots of jolly times were shared with him. God bless you Arthur! X’
Janice Rider: ‘Simply a lovely man . Very sad’
