01.05.2022 – Local history adviser on ‘Jay Blades – No Place Like Home’

Way back in December 2020 I was contacted by a TV producer who was developing an idea for a history programme based around someone who grew up in Stoke Newington in the 1970s & 80s learning about the history of the area.

By April 2021 that someone turned out to be TV presenter Jay Blades and I took the producer and a researcher for the programme on an hour-long history tour of Stoke Newington, focusing on the streets Jay Blades grew up in. It was good fun and the three-part programme, titled ‘Jay Blades – No Place Like Home’ is airing in on Channel 5 at 9pm on the 3rd, 10th and 17th of May 2022.
