Our speaker was Judith Popley with My Life at Granada. She worked there from the early years in the press office and later on the set of documentaries and drama in various roles including continuity. She saw many famous people starting their careers in small roles in various shows and series such as Brideshead with Anthony Andrews and Jeremy Irons. She also worked with Ken Russell and Melvin Bragg among many others. She explained that what we see is not always as we think i.e. a summer picnic was filmed in freezing cold.
