Foreword to 'No Cousin of Mine' by John Noakes*, probably the most famous of all the presenters of the Blue Peter programme
They say, and I think it was once a book title ”Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be”…..but in all honesty I think I can say having read Derek’s book that “Nostalgia is alive and well”.
Even for those who weren’t personally involved, it’s a good read and tells a story of those less sophisticated post-war years when the whole world seemed to be looking forward and young Junior Technicians felt anything was possible.
Thanks Derek for reminding me of those days. They weren’t all bad!
