Shalom Salaam – photos from Gus and Bev Dartnall














































Photos by Willoughby Gullachsen (Gus), with team photo from Bev Dartnall.  No reproduction without permission.

The drama was written and directed by Gareth Jones, and produced at Pebble Mill by Chris Parr.  The 1989 series follows the story of  two culturally different families who become intertwined when a Jewish boy  (John Cater) and a Muslim girl (Mamta Kaash) fall in love whilst at college.  Much of the filming was on location in Leicester.  Zia Mohyeddin, Charlotte Cornwell and Buki Armstrong also featured.

The crew photo features: left-to-right Elson Godbolt (Vision Engineer), Don Cooper (Camera Supervisor), Tim Everett (sound), Colin Fearnley (VT Engineer), Dave Bushell (Lighting Director) and Bob Jacobs (1st AD).

  1. Please can I use the above photo of Elson Godbolt on my family tree. He is my cousin and I would love to be able to contact him!
    With kind regards,
    Charmian Bourne


    I’m sorry that I’m a year late responding but I’ve only just seen this URL with the request to use a photo of myself taken in Leicester. While permission for this is not mine to give, I’d gladly give it if it were so.

    Am I too late or could you possibly pass on to Charmian this entire email?

    I would love to make contact with her; we have never actually met each other!

    Best wishes

    Elson G.
    PS. to Ed. Please could you let me know if you are still able to contact her? Thanks

  3. Hi Elson

    I’ll email Charmian and forward your email and contact details. Fingers crossed she’ll get in touch with you.

    Best wishes
