Here are just some of the photographs taken from 1979
Some of these photographs have been taken by professional photographers others are snap shots from my personal collection.
A lot of the progammes featured in these photos can be found there too. These captured memories span a few decades.
The earliest photo of me is on the steps of our house in Bristol, taken in 1960. The most recent was July 2013 at our home in Exeter.
ITV’s Splash, the flagship Children’s programme, at the time, had many a photo opportunity. One of the first assignments on the magazine style show was to have professional head shots taken. Who more famous at that time to take them than the Queens cousin, Lord Patrick Lichfield. He was the 5th Earl of Lichfield. The show featuring the star photographer was broadcast in 1985. Unfortunately Thames TV did not keep a record of it and Patrick passed away in 2005.
Here are a few shots taken from the Miss Young Pears Soap competition, held at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Londons Park Lane.
