A certain someone on BBC2...
« on: November 03, 2007, 02:40:36 am »
Boy, I don't start many topics, but I thought this might be interesting to someone.

I was watching the ol' tube and on BBC2 (a channel we have in the UK) and for some reason, "Passion for Plants" was on at 8pm as narrated by Alan Titchmarsh.  Not sure of the situation but I managed to catch a glimps of a sprinkler by known other than Zack Turner.  On national TV nonetheless.  There was also another fellow with some low 3 ball stuff dressed as an invisible man too, but that wasn't what caught my attention.

Probably not worth trying to look for any footage but some guys might be interested to know.

Good on you Zack!
I'd like to see the footage.

I've just spent a few minutes fluttering about the BBC2 website, hopefully searching for potential clips of the show, to no avail. Rather disappointing really. If someone wants to help searching, feel free. But it does seem like it might be pointless.

The other person (in the invisible man outfit) is most likely Tiff or Zacks' twin , we all work for the same company doing walkabout, workshops and shows Marc and Chris Cabry* are also part of the same setup. Since the program included something about ravenscliffe estate in Bradford we were probably doing something there.

Sharp eyed viewers might recognise the similarity between the invisible man and my singing in the rain outfit.
*twins eh?

You could Email/write to the BBC and ask them for a tape of the show, they might ask for a few quid but hey they can only say no, worth a shot i say

I used to have some friends who were video librarians at the BBC so I can ask around for a copy if you would like.  Can't guarentee anything (can't spell that word either) but I'll give it a go if you're enthusiastic.

Corr, you could make a killing in the business with a twin, two jobs under one name.  Shame you have different disciplines though...
