Thanks to Gary Jordan for sharing the photograph.
The following comments were left on the Pebble Mill Facebook Page:
Robert Greaves: ‘What a great picture. Pebble Mill at One was always a good reason to miss first period of afternoon school! Marian was always the most professional yet homely – I often wonder what she did after Pebble Mill.’
Lynn Cullimore: ‘Such memories of those days and lovely Donny who died.’
Sue Westwood: ‘I loved Pebble Mill at One. My neighbour made the cake for the final programme.’
Steve Weddle: ‘That was the year I joined the production team as a researcher on PM at One. I was lucky to work with a really great line-up of presenters, and a brilliant editor called Terry Dobson, who virtually invented the daytime magazine show.’
I was a member of the RSSPCC staff around 1970 when Robert Langley came to Glasgow to make a televising documentary on “A typical Saturday night in Glasgow when children are taken into the care of the local authority for a variety of reasons, neglect, abuse etc.”
Robert was gobsmacked at some of he situations he witnessed but he was a very charming man and very professional. It was the days before viewers could record programs and the documentary will probably have been destroyed years ago. Or is it still stored away in the BBC archives somewhere???
