c. 1966 -

‘Boy’ Prentice was an amazing character. A successful farmer in his own right (his property was out Westbrook way), he doubled as the station's rural reporter, filming his own news stories.

Boy, however, had only one arm, having lost the other during World War II. It was quite a sight to see him load a Bell and Howell 70DR camera with one hand – it was often fiddly enough with two.

To film, he mounted the camera on a monopod.
