“There was the odd occasion when telecine film projector broke down… when the film snapped or snarled you had no pre recorded material.
Everything was ‘live’.
Innocently passing the studio during transmission one day I was hauled in to play straight woman to a devilish double act of Stuart Hall and Ken Dodd!”
“Stuart spent much of his time trying to make me laugh while I regaled the nation with stories of death, destruction and industrial carnage.”

“I led the team which won the lottery money to build and run a £127 million international arts venue, The Lowry.
