The good old days when crews were 4 or more and cameras were 16mm film, this is STV covering the construction of the QE2. PS. Some cameramen who know this camera noticed that the picture had been flipped…just for them I have corrected it.
Last night was the reunion of STV employees from 1957-2006, I worked for STV over a 2 year period from 1999 to 2001 covering news and sport.
A familiar face to HD Warrior was Allen McLaughlin who worked for STV for 6 years before moving onto BBC Scotland.
Then and now, anchorman Dermot McQuarrie who flew in from the USA to be at the reunion.
My good friend Eleanor and Teddy Winters, Eleanor was in charge of schedules.
A face many children were happy to see on STV, Glen Michael who presented “The Glen Michael Cavalcade” show, showing cartoons like Casper the friendly ghost…yes I remember, I was one of those children !
Bryce Curdy and his wife Margret, Bryce was one of STVs anchor men.
Robert Love who was the producer of one of the best dramas to come out of Scotland…Taggart.
Mike Gower and Carol Biggin, Mike was initially a continuity announcer then a director and Carol was in charge of recording news from uplinks etc.
My good friend Fiona Ross who was the chief political reporter for STV,we had some great laughs driving through to Edinburgh for the odd political report.
My ex boss Chris Attkins and his wife Jan was a senior cameraman at STV and has helped produce some reviews for HD Warrior.
The team who made it all happen, Jim Sheach, Cliff Martin, Mandy Barnes, Tony Currie and Ron Seeth.
