Yet another Presenter I worked with, in my time at the BBC.
John, Peter & Val on Blue Peter.
All really nice people, I really looked forwards to working on each Episode of Blue Peter, transmitted live.
Hope John is OK.

Re: John Noakes

After Alzheimer's sufferer John Noakes goes missing, his Blue Peter co-star VALERIE SINGLETON pays a moving tribute
There’s comfort in knowing that for millions who grew up in the Sixties and Seventies, he’s a unique figure — a scatty, madcap hero whose sheer zest for life will never be forgotten.

Re: John Noakes

Probably went looking for (get down) Shep, it is possible the Alzheimers may make him remember those days?
