ATV Today: 27.08.1970: Bill Pickering Swimming Bristol Channel


Bloxwich swimmer Bill Pickering has swum the Bristol Channel in both directions.

We see Pickering being greased in preparation for his swim as a large crowd looks on (the entertainer Dickie Henderson is also present to wish him well). We then see Bill Pickering swimming in open water.
