|As well as the lectures, there was time to enjoy the ambience of Wood Norton and the BBC Club. To relive(!) those days, click on the icon on the right for a short clip from mute film shot by Mark Kershaw in 1970.|
|Eddie Wheaton has sent these two pictures of the BBC Club in Evesham. He explains:-
“ This was originally a postcard and I have an A4 photocopy of the original signed by the artist and dated 1964, before I joined in '65. In my small circle of friends 4 of us met our wives at the club, 3 were local girls and my wife was a nurse in Worcester. I recall that the local lads did not like the BBC lads getting all the best girls! Philip (my son) tells me that the sign outside says it was formally the BBC Club. ”
This image of the Club was taken by Eddie's son on his mobile phone! It should bring back many, many memories..............
Apparently it split from the official BBC Club many years ago, but was able to retain the BBC name. But recently, someone within the BBC decided that this use of the BBC "brand" was no longer acceptable, and after a bit of a battle the club had no choice but to stop using that name.
