RunTK! Skateboarding Duck!
Teatime in the 70s meant Nationwide to millions of viewers: a daily current-affairs magazine, it covered everything from hard news to twee items like the title's skateboarding duck. It was on Nationwide that Mrs Thatcher was harried over the Belgrano incident by a tenacious housewife and it was Nationwide that instigated the move to get pyramid selling outlawed. Yet it was also the programme that had a panto featuring Norman Tebbit on vocals. By talking to the presenters and the boys in the backroom, the programme's producer, Angela Hind (once a Nationwide researcher), has made an anecdote-rich tale of dodgy technology and hair-raising deadlines that is as amusing as it is nostalgic. Perfect Archive Hour material. Read The Inside Story on p74. Frances Lass
