There’s a higher quality version over here.

    Ah, very nice. Very tastefully done.

    Amazing isn’t it – there’s always someone you’d forgotten had passed away when you see an obituary list like this?

    All of them much missed, but they’ll be long remembered.

    Absolutely beautiful. I gasped a couple of times when I saw faces who I forgot has passed away, and the Oliver Postgate caused me to choke back the tears.

    Well done. Shame you couldn’t have had a Mike Flex clip from Radio Active for Geoffrey Perkins and “salute to Thames” for Brian Cowgill

    People like Bryan Cowgill and Bill Cotton are TV Cream heroes who created some of the greatest programmes of the Cream era. There are two excellent articles about them on the Transdiffusion website. We definitely need television executives like them now, when all that seems to be on are endless reality shows and crummy talent contests.
