‘Missing Believed Wiped’

Posted on August 12, 2018 by Admin under SHOWBIZ


A great day of showbiz at BFI on the South Bank for the Kaleidoscope 30 Years ‘Missing Believed Wiped’ event where I met many people, some from the past, some not.

– David Hamilton; we hadn’t met for about 60 years when we were both post boys at ATV Kingsway.

– Abagail Williams; the adopted daughter of Bob Monkhouse who was such a nice man to work with on Family Fortunes, Bonkers, Golden Shot, Celebrity Squares etc.

– Gail Renard; Bafta award-winning writer and a scriptwriter of ATV’s Pipkins, a show when we would let a camera assistant to actually operate a camera for the first time.

– John Henshall; the saviour of a videotape of Top of The Pops with David Bowie singing The Jean Genie, which the BBC had wiped to save money.

– Madeleine Smith; a Bond Girl in the 1973 Live and let Die with Roger Moore, such a lovely lady who knows all about London bus routes.

– Nigel Plaskitt; puppeteer of Hartley Hare on Pipkins, he became a Muppeteer and worked on Central Television’s Spitting Image.

Thanks to Chris Perry and Kaleidoscope for a great day!

    We would love to know if you still have anything of the late Larry Grayson the entire series of Shut that Door and other deleted shows of his.

    Plus anything with John Inman as well
