Photos by Jim Knights, no reproduction without permission.
The photos are from ‘Midlands Opt-Out’ location shoots, dating from the mid 1980s. Each week there would be a 30′ Regional Opt-Out’ programme, which tended to be location based programme. Jim Knights is the cameraman (sporting a Top Gear jacket), and he thinks that the other chap in the first photo is Charlie Tremanye (who went to World in Action, rose to Exec Producer and now produces reality TV in the USA and is quite a TV big-wig) and the PA is Linda Flavell. The other two photos are also from ‘Midlands Opt-Out’ locations.
Thanks to Jane Marriott for providing information about Charlie Tremanye.
Please add a comment if you have more information.
Not Charles Mansell, it’s Charlie Tremanye. Went to World in Action, rose to Exec Producer. Now produces reality TV in the USA and is quite a TV big-wig.
Thanks for that correction – I’ll update the original post.
