Meet Pudsey Bear mark 1. Save for this photo, he seems to have been airbrushed out of history – perhaps wisely.

Presumably Michael Grade arrived at the Beeb, took one look at this scruffy unkempt ragamuffin and demanded a makeover. And then he ordered a new Pudsey as well.

    Wogan looks quite young on here, possibly in the era when he was the alternative BBC DG as he was never off BBC Radio and Television and probably had a penthouse suite at Broad casting House as he never seemed to be away from Auntie. However, if you didn’t find his routines with Kenny Everett amusing on Blankety Blank, then you must have been very hard to please.
