MACE had a happy surprise on Wednesday when Chris Tarrant spoke to BBC Radio Derby’s Andy Potter and mentioned From ATVLand in Colour!
Chris was sent a copy of the DVD following the interview he recorded for the documentary with ATVLand.Productions. Talking to Andy on Wednesday about the charity edition of Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Chris asked Andy, ‘Have you seen those pictures of me in the ATVLand Video…the DVD…I just look at myself and think, what was I wearing… you have to say I was worryingly pretty!
Chris went onto say: ‘I’m kind of a professional Brummie because, although I’m a Southerner, my career started in the Midlands, and I just love the memories of the Midlands…I had so many laughes in the Midlands period, ATV and then obviously Tiswas.’
