Les,

Sorry it's such  a late response - not sure quite how I missed your post from back in 2018, but still. I won't be anyone that you remember, coming from LCR as I do.]

I presume you are (or at least were) enquiring after the likes of Ken Tink, Ken Dalimore, Ian McCraw, Mike Dixon, Keith Harvey , Steve Hatherly, and Tony Nelson? [I hope I've got their names correct - from my failing memory.]

The only ones I have "definite" knowledge of are Tony Nelson (who sadly passed away a couple of years ago) and Steve Hatherly, who retired some 8-10 years ago, and who seems to spend a lot of time nowadays sailing!! [He does/did 'appear' at times on Facebook, so I'm moderately sure he's still with us.]

Haven't heard a dickybird of the two Ken's since they left!
Ian McCraw was last known to be living "somewhere around Aylesbury", but that was a few years ago now. No more recent knowledge, I'm afraid.

Perhaps not much help in the grand scheme of things, but better than nothing I hope.

Thanks so much for the reply! Those names ring a faint bell. Like an idiot, I don't think I named the three people I was thinking of?! In the office with me at the time were: Bill Banham (boss), with Jim Nesbit (or Nisbet?) and Rhada Pisherodi (prob spelt quite differently!). This is what they looked like then (November '71). Oh, turns out I don't seem to be able to attach and image...???? Any ideas?

HI Les,

Well I know this forum 'can' take images (on the PC interface it's the 3rd button on the top row (between Insert FTP Link and Insert e-mail Link) but I confess I've never seen any. Maybe it is just too difficult - but then it might be worth a try. If it fails, I'll give you a brief glimpse of my private e-mail address and you can try and send it to me via that route.

I have a (very!) vague recollection of those names you mention, although I confess to not knowing anything about them or their present whereabouts.

Would I be right in thinking that Jim Nesbit had a wife who also worked for the Beeb in or around BH? If it's the person I think it is, I seem to remember they used to meet up outside the side entrance of BH Extension at going home time. On the other hand that might be someone else entirely!!

TS(R) was 'broken up' a very long time ago now (I'd venture >40 years at least) and if they are the people I think you're referring to, that would make them very old (and I'm saying that being no youngster myself!).

I'm truly sorry that I can't offer any more info: perhaps someone else reading this posting might have an idea if they see the names.

I also thought I'd probably left it too late! I had no recollection of Jim meeting his wife outside BH until you mentioned it, but now it does ring (feint!) bell. Thanks for all the interest!

Regret I don't recall either of those individuals.
However, other people who occasionally come to this site may perhaps do, so nothing lost!
