    Well done Lee!

    Maybe we should have a thread about TV appearances ;)

    I was in the music vid for a Bruce Hornsby tune "the way it is" you probs remember the Tup pac cover of it. Anyway its a classic tune.

    Was about 11 and they showed it on TOTP but we where too poor to own a VCR so never recorded it, so none of the kids at school believed me :twisted:

    Apparently I was seen several times in the background of a late 1970 series (oops that gives my age away!) which I think was called Gangsters. It was something to do with Chinese Triads and drugs. I never saw it but several people at the time told me they saw me as they used the warehouse entrance to the shop I was working in at the time as a backdrop. I remember them filming it but at the time had no idea what it was.

    I think it was mainly the first episode I was in so if anyone has it, I'd love to see it. I don't hold out a lot of hope though.

    PS preferably not on betamax or am I showing my age again?

    video cameras

    What interesting is that with the onset of video cameras the shock of how you look or act on screen is less of a shock....I have learnt to accept myself...LOL

    I was once interviewed live on the BBC 6 o'clock news after the Euro96 England Spain quarter final at Wembley

    I went there with a group of friends after one of them couldn't use his ticket, I don't even like football and didn't really know any of the players. My mates all thought it was really funny seeing me trying to talk about something I knew nothing about. No change there then :)

    When I was 11 I entered an Elvis Presley competition with Liverpool's BBC Radio City and sung "teddy bear" live on air. When the votes came in I unfortunately came in 2nd place. I was beaten by a 4 year old girl singing "wooden heart". It was at this early time in my life I decided to find a new career.... :???:

    To this very day I only think she won because she was so young :mad:
