This interview with Steve Weddle is from a 1980 book called ‘Working in Television’, by Jan Leeming. It gives a fascinating insight into the life of a researcher on Pebble Mill at One.

Thanks to Jonathan Dick for sharing the excerpt.

The following comment was added on the Pebble Mill Facebook page:

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.’
