Aha. World service television! Yes indeed. Lindsey Brancher, Riz Khan, Martine Dennis and Julian Marshall. All four of them sported the same bouffant hairdo! I think they may even have passed it around between shifts!
Those were the days.
May I also add Peter Dobbie!! He joined the channel when it was still there I think.
No. He joined when it had transitioned from World Service Television to "BBC World". In 1995 or 96, if I'm not mistaken.
In fact, didn't the former ITN NAT presenter Pamela Armstrong also appear on WST?
You know in the way that airlines paint some of their aircraft in a retro scheme to celebrate a particular anniversary, for example? Well, I wish World would turn the clock back for just one week and reintroduce the Flags for a walk down memory lane!
Indeed, some of the original faces are still there. Nik. Martine. Peter.
