Ray Butt was the original producer of Only Fools and Horses and was instrumental in getting the show on television. Sadly Ray died two years ago, aged 78. I was asked to contribute to a tribute on BBC Radio 4’s programme The Last Word which you can listen to here:
And here’s a link to my original written tribute to Ray.
Today I have been remembering Miriam Hyman and thinking about her and the 51 other people killed in the 7/7 London bombings – and, of course, their families.
Miriam was a picture researcher at BBC Worldwide and I was lucky enough to work with her on two of my books. She was great at her job and just lovely company.
She was on a bus in Tavistock Square, London on 7/7 2005 and was one of 13 people murdered when a terrorist detonated a bomb.
Miriam’s family has established The Miriam Hyman Memorial Trust which helps children in India in need of eye operations: www.miriam-hyman.com Please take a look at it when you have time.
