Hi again - mind if I revive this thread? I managed to transfer an audio clip of the guy I'm searching for. Please have a listen....
It's a 20 second clip from a Cinema Short (nothing to do with the BBC) within a 55 minute BBC documentary Rick C...If we knew what the film was, where the clip came from, it would be a doddle to work out.
I'm pretty sure that clip is Barrie Cookson.
It sounds like Barrie Cookson to me too.
Thanks both for the Barrie Cookson tip. Any evidence or links you could point me to? I've had a quick Google but no luck....
I did a double check by putting on an episode of DOOMWATCH called "Invasion" in which he appeared.
Thanks Gerald. Looks like mystery solved then.
Would you happen to know if he did any newsreel stuff or was it just features like "Look at Life"?
I believe he did a lot of voice-over and continuity work, Dayo, but I don't know about his contributions to newsreels.
Big thanks to everyone who took the time and trouble to pitch in. What a friendly and intelligent forum! Thanks again.
Small world Al! How the devil are you? It's Colin Day...
