Filming Sort-it-out-Man for BBC Three

Filmed at East End near Newbury, we participated at 2 days notice then spent nearly a whole day waiting to do our bit.  It was a real hoot. The "plot" was that the village had lost it's pub and Sort-it-out-Man would create one for the day.

Dances: Brimfield, Craven Stomp, Sheepskins
Dancers: Colin, Chris, Dave D, Dave K, Nikki, Jenny, Mike G, Linda and Liz
Musicians: Doug, Gill, Ann, Ian, Ian F, Vera and a WB helper


Postscript: the episode was never broadcast - but we were in the titles for the whole series.
