The joy of blogging

Earlier today I had an e-mail from the communications officer at Oldbury power station. She had come across my posting on Evel Knievel and through it the story of my participation in the 1977 British Monopoly championship, which was held at Oldbury.

The station is soon to close and they are writing its history. It seems that I am a valuable source for this particluar episode.

I am told that other highlights of the station's history include:
  • the filming of a Doctor Who episode, featuring Tom Baker and Elizabeth Sladen;
  • the filming of an episode of Blake's 7;
  • Pan's People dancing to a Slade record on top of the pile cap for Top of the Pops.
