Here are links to two episode of the Midlands version of ‘See For Yourself’. They date from 1991 and 1992. They include clips from many BBC Pebble Mill programmes as well as behind the scenes footage and interviews.
This cutting is from the opening of the Pebble Mill crèche in 1989 – one of the first in the BBC. It was actually Pebble Mill’s second creche, the first being in the 1970s, and only lasting a year or two. Ruth Barretto (Gill) and her daughter, Elena Rebekah were at the 1989 opening, along with Head of Broadcasting, David Waine and creche Manager, Pauline Mandry.
Prince Charles and Princess Diana visited BBC Pebble Mill circa 1985.
David Waine, who has died at the age of 76, had a career with the BBC spanning 30 years ending as Head of Broadcasting at BBC Pebble Mill in Birmingham.
