Shalom Salaam – Janice Rider

Specially shot video interview with costume designer Janice Rider, talking about working on the 1988 drama series, ‘Shalom Salaam’. The series was written and directed by Gareth Jones. The producer was Chris Parr. It was recorded on location in Leicester, and followed the fortunes of a Jewish and a Muslim family.

The series starred Zia Mohyeddin, Mamta Kaash, Toby Rolt, Clare Holman, Jimmi Harkishin, Charlotte Cornwell, John Carter and Buki Armstrong.

The production photos in the video were almost certainly taken by Willoughby Gullachsen.

Electrician Andy Frizzell adds the following comment on the Facebook page: ‘I worked it. Dave Bushell lit it assisted by John Abbott. Gaffer was Roger Hynes. It was an early TV appearance for the lovely Clare Holman who went on to appear in ‘Morse’ amongst other things.’
