Graham Naylor
I remember beeing a volenteer on a programme for radio Stoke, it was called "Down to Earth". I think. It covered religious news and events. Sue Booth was the Producer.

Brian Roberts
Mike taught me to edit on one of those big reel to reels. Although he isn't editing in picture 21 as there is no editing block! In those days it was as low tech as a chinagraph pencil to mark the tape, a razor to cut it and splicing tape.... still works but very laborious. He is probably just teeing up to play the edited tape in at the right moment.

Mike Whittaker
Picture 20 is Penkhull Church. The people pictured are l - r: Gay Penell, Neil Arrowsmith, Mike Whittaker, Phil Littler, Chris Whittaker (Nee Lane), George Heath, Radio Stoke Producer, Tony Littler, Albert Arrowsmith. John Cordeaux, who lived in Penkhull, arranged this broadcast around 1970.

Pete
Picture no.20 looks very much like Penkhull Church.

Des Richards
The one on the left is david creddington,the original P.O.,who I think went to Humberside.
