Bio: I am of that British generation for whom the Saturday morning 'pictures' captured imagination and dictated that week's play. Many of us children who attended their cinema clubs can also exactly time their first, serious encounter with TV. This was 2nd June 1953 with the coronation of a queen. Almost ten years after this I was appearing in front of TV cameras as a musician; and five years later I gained the 'golden' ACTT union ticket and was working behind cameras (film rather than studio) as a freelance film and TV technician. I like radio, TV and film. I also like archaeology, which I began to study formally a decade or so ago; and am presently hatching a slow PhD. I write the Broadcast column for British Archaeology magazine.
