A hoarder? Me? Never! That trunk in my cellar has only been there umpty um years and for umpty um years I believed it locked and the key well and truly lost. Except today I glanced at it and realised the latch was hanging loose. … to cut to the chase, I rummaged inside and found…
- lots of ‘lost’ documents from when I first started researching the Emm surname.
- all my research books for the TV programme ‘Madabout’ transmitted from Tyne Tees in Newcastle. I worked on the second series.
- lots of other stuff including family photographs (yes please). I need to go through it all but the spores from the cellar are somewhat interesting so I will take my time …
However, I am sharing this rare memento from 1983. The BFI and IMDB have very little record of this show even though one of the episodes for which I was responsible, Madabout Flying, was nominated for BAFTA. Not that I was invited to the ceremony….
Matthew Kelly was the presenter. Diane Campbell the producer.
If anyone out there has any memories of this series: you took part; you worked on the crew; you were a fan of the show, I would love to hear from you!
