We were invited to visit the newly refurbished Shepherd’s Bush Empire, known to us as the Television Theatre. Lots of us worked there over the years, on all kinds of programmes – The Billy Cotton Band Show, The Black and White Minstrel Show, Crackerjack, The Val Doonican Show, Wogan, and lots more. Here are some pictures, click for big. The last one isn’t from the visit, but from a Jim’ll Fix It book, supplied by John Sherlock. It features Alan Bayley on camera 2 with Dion Casey tracker and Colin Hazelwood on stage with a hand-held camera.
