  1. Tim Savage says 3rd from left is Sally Daniels, PA, and the left of 2 guys by door frame is Charles Bond, set designer. The other of the 2 was a floor manager, name as yet unremembered.

  2. Hi Russ, thanks for that, the AFM was called Ian Tootle apparently – so you can put Tim out of his misery! Any ideas on what the drama was? Vanessa

  3. Ian D Tootle was indeed the AFM – now a respected Line Producer. I’m sure Bill Hartley will remember this show – I’ll get on to him.

  4. Hi John, thanks for that – if you could find out from Bill Hartley what the drama was, I’d be really interested to know.

  5. Hi Vanessa,

    This is Urban Jungle from about 1985 written I think by Garry Lyons. This is a tech run in Moseley Hall. Andrew Smith was the Production Manager. I was a newly arrived floor assistant. It starred Roy Kinnear, Annie Raitt and a young Tim Roth amongst others in a predominantly athletic and beautiful young cast. It had a really adventurous “3D” set – the burned out “Empire Mill” which in the rehearsal room was mocked up with scaffolding. Sadly it never made transmission.

  6. Hi Gareth

    Thanks for identifying this drama, that’s really helpful, and I’ll update the original post accordingly.
