Programs

an Afternoon Affair with Errol
I was asked to take over the Interview program from John Crook " the Crook Affair" and so began my Television career on " An Afternoon Affair with Errol" [ what a title?] Peter Koury Directed most and we managed to experiment with a few different segments over about 8 years. Any guest who was inntown was on , from someone floggiong a new underware to actors, entertainers and local bods plugging their event. It was a lot of fun, always doing one day live then recording the rest for the week ahead. We had cooking segment , book reviews, panel discussions, and tried as much as we could without a budget. I remember well one of the first live programs being caught a beauty by the boys upstairs. I had signed off from the live show and was waiting for the closing credits when the cameraman signelled me to keep going , ad lib etc. I duly obliged and was waffelling on about absolutely nothing for over a minute when I head the distinct sound of laughter from upstairs. Eventually the cameraman couldnt keep a straight face either and broke up to admit that I had fallen for the old joke where the Off Air monitor in the studio had been switched to Studio  to make me believe we were still on air. 
Gee they were fun days!
