Blue Peter visit to Waterworks Museum in 1978

The announcement of the death of BBC presenter John Noakes on 28th May 2017 has caused us to reflect on the occasion in 1978 when ‘Blue Peter’ visited the Waterworks Museum – Hereford on the 25th January 1978 to record an item which was broadcast on the 17th April 1978.

The attached extracts of articles published in the Museum Journal in May 1978 record this visit. They were penned by John Townsend, the Museum Curator, and two of the Museum’s younger members and volunteers who appeared in the programme, Stephen Hughes and Tom Benson.

RIP John Noakes
