I was so interested to find a Ford/Hayton YouTube clip! on the SIX - ALSO Anna Ford on the 1 pre virtual era.

Yeah all presenters on the Six presented with each other at least once in the 1990s. Although I’ve heard when Martyn Lewis swapped with Peter who moved to the 9 in 1994, that he never presented with Anna once.

Here's Nick Witchell and Phillip Hayton doing the Six. *Apologies I had thought he was with Anna.



I am sure Hayton presented with Ford... *driving me mad!

Anna’s first bulletin at the BBC when she joined was the Six alongside Nicholas Witchell.

I always remember Nick saying at the end of the bulletin:

“That was the Six O’clock News. From Anna - who is most welcome - and from me, Good Evening”.

Funny how random things like that stick in your mind.

Furthermore, her first appearance was a surprise on a Tuesday, whereas it was billed for the Wednesday and Thursday.

Great find! Weren’t we debating this for days on the other thread a few weeks ago, namely, did Anna ever do the “One” before the virtual era and before she became its permanent presenter in 99.

This clip reminds me of what a great broadcaster she was. Ice cool.

I've always wanted to see the overnight broadcast of the night he fell asleep in the newsroom and someone had to come in to the rescue. Mainly the bulletin before he fell asleep and then the bulletin where he didn't appear.

The BBC Two slide at the start looks odd, with the red text and white background (the ones I’ve seen all have a black background). Wonder why that happened!
