Photos by Ian Collins, no reproduction without permission.
Television is tiring work, as you can tell from these photos, involving long days and lots of travelling! Annoyingly there always seems to be someone around with a camera when you’re just resting your eyes for a few minutes!
The first photo is of ‘Clothes Show’ producer, Clare Stride, who sadly died of cancer several years ago, then P.A. Jane Mclean, followed by a vision engineer called John Bradley, then Chris Glover from VT, but the last is of Nick Patten, now the Head of Vision Productions at BBC Birmingham and BBC Manchester. Sat next to Nick is Sam Cox (sound), and behind him pointing is Nigel Evans (editor).
You close your eyes for a couple of seconds……..
Curse you Collins!
