Lynn Cullimore: ‘Who could forget Rustie! I remember going into the studio and being invited to have some of the lovely food she had made. I was not even a member of the production, just someone who happened to walk in.’

Malcolm Hickman: ‘She also had a restaurant in Hurst Street. 4 of us went one night and spent a fortune on Caribbean cocktails, but had a fabulous night out.’

Pete Simpkin: ‘Somewhere I have the big green folder containing among other things the correct balance and control settings for audio levels…. Obviously no longer issued!!’

Stuart Gandy: ‘I still have one of these too somewhere. Funnily enough I am at Wood Norton this week almost 35 years to the day that I started my BBC career there, where I was presented with the little red book!’

Alan Jessop: ‘Still got mine in the loft, you used to get a pack of new pages now and again with updated regs, you we’re suppose to replace updated pages and chuck the old ones!’

Malcolm Hickman: ‘Mine went west years ago, but I do have my Comms Data Sheets’

Ray Lee: ‘I think I’ve still got mine somewhere!’
