BBC1 Look North Dec 1984

Studio interview for the local BBC North East local news show Look North to report my having won joint second (wow!) in the Amateur Photographer of the Year competition.  They kindly printed up three huge black and white shots I had taken of local landscapes – warehouses below the Metro Bridge, an alley-way in Silver St, Durham and gravestones at Whitby abbey and mounted these on foamboard as a backdrop to the interview.  I can’t remember whether reference was also made to a local competition at the famous Side Gallery – I have a sketchy letter from them that seems to refer to me winning something. The foamboard prints were used in many of our houses over the years until they became too dog eared and were eventually chucked out!
