Please contact me via the box below if you have any comments, corrections or additions. If you have documents or photos you would like to post to me then again email me and I will let you know my address.
Please note that between 9th and 19th November 2021, this system was not in operation. Many apologies if you contacted me during those 10 days but your message has been lost. Please write to me again and I will respond accordingly.
I am aware that there are still bound to be some errors and omissions in these documents. I genuinely welcome any information that might help with these. The corrections may not appear immediately, but they will in due course!
I am occasionally contacted by people asking where they might find archive tapes of old programmes. I’m afraid that’s a mystery to me too. Also, some people have asked me to place an appeal on the site to try to trace colleagues from years ago. This isn’t really the place for that frankly and once I start I know I will spend most of my time trying to keep all that up to date. Sorry if this appears a bit harsh but there are websites that deal specifically with that kind of thing.
Also, and I hope I make this clear throughout the website, please don’t ask for permission to use the photos on this site. Many have been sent to me and I have no idea who the copyright owner is I’m afraid. If you own the copyright to an image and would like a credit or would like it removed (hopefully not!) I will of course oblige.
Many thanks to everyone who has taken the trouble to contact me. You are all listed on the bibliography page.
Important Copyright Information
A little word of warning to students: the written material on this site is copyright. You may not copy it and use it as your own work! Please – if you are wishing to use any written material for publication in a book, TV or radio programme or on-line, feel free to ask and I shall try to be as helpful as possible.
Do not assume that any images are free to be copied or used elsewhere. Most have been sent to me with the intention of being used only on this website and I can’t say it is OK to use them anywhere else. Some are personal photographs, others may have been copied from publications without my knowledge.
Please don’t write to me asking for permission to use the images. That permission is not mine to give. If you believe that you own the copyright to any image displayed here and wish it to be removed – or just perhaps given a credit if one is missing – I will of course be happy to oblige. Many of the illustrations are copyrighted by their respective copyright holders according to the original copyright or publication date as printed on the artwork or publication and are reproduced here simply for historical reference, educational and research purposes.
