Steve Weddle: ‘I do remember writing this for Jan’s book, Working In Television. She very kindly said a few positive things about me in the preface, without money changing hands, for which I was most grateful. There were a number of ex-Pebble Millers featured in the book, including Mike Bloor, who I discovered from his piece, used to be a postman. It was really a guide on how to get into television in the 1970’s, when oopprtunities were limited, mainly becuase there were only three channels, and no such thing as indies. Jan Leeming used to present on the original Pebble Mill at One, before going on to find even more fame and fortune as a Newsreader on the BBC National Bulletins. She was a lovely lady who is still going strong, most recently on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.’
