  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Worcester Signing by Spursfan on 27 October 2004 5:27pm
I am presently a very happy bunny after meeting Michael, shaking his hand etc. BUT - does anyone else who was there know where the camera crew were from? I watched both 'BBC Midlands Today' and 'Central News' last night but they didn't run the story.

Unless it's on tonight (because they wanted to wait for the Solihull signing and run them both) - could it have been Michael's crew filming us for some special???!!! Or documentary makers filming 'the everyday life of Michael Palin'?

I'm dying to know (so I can set the video!!).

Best wishes all

try ringing the book store as the camera crew would have had to tell them and show identity before filming - that may be your best bet

the crew in the norwich store were from anlgia tv east and i recorded michael on tv that night - all one minute of it!! - i asked the camera man where he was from myself!! giggle

phone the book shop for help is all i can suggest anne ok

Thanks Diamond <>! I might just try that or leave a message on their website.

As I say, defo wasn't the two Midlands news teams - but then if yours was on for a minute I guess I could have missed it channel hopping???

Thanks again

I have had a reply from Ottakars Worcester to say that the film crew were hired by Ottakars to record it as part of a short film on events run by them in 2004. It will be shown at next year's management meeting.

Oh well!!

I was there too and looked out for it on TV. As it wasn't on BBC1 or ITV, I thought maybe it was for Michael's publishers/marketing team so they could view how things went and consider a future visit.

I had my picture taken for a Worcester paper too, but as I live in Staffordshire, I was not able to buy a copy. If anyone could post a copy of the article so I can see it, that would be great! I think it was for the Worcester Evening News, probably Wednesday's (27th Oct) edition.
