Memories of "By the Seaside", 1983

Viewer Colin Rhodes got in touch to say he'd found an old TV-am pen in his loft.   The find sparked memories of meeting TV-am presenters Chris Tarrant and Lizzie Webb in August 1983.   A raid of the family archives turned up a few photos of a holiday to Rhyl, North Wales where Colin, his parents and sister watched TV-am's "By the Seaside" feature being broadcast live to the nation from the beach.

Here's Colin with his sister and TV-am fitness presenter Lizzie Webb.    Below, the pen Colin rediscovered and which he's kindly donated to the TV-am archive for safe keeping!
