Pleasantly Disturbed


by Lee Stuart Evans

The late 1980s.

Robin dreams of becoming Jim Kerr, singer in the best band in the world, Simple Minds, despite having no talent whatsoever.

Fliss is a musical genius, perhaps the East Midlands’ answer to Kate Bush, if only she had more confidence.

Until rock stardom inevitably descends upon him, Robin takes a job at the local garage, where for the first time in his life he finds a sense of purpose; while Fliss, pushed by her mother, reluctantly auditions for TV’s biggest talent show and proves an instant hit.

When dozens of fast cars are stolen, old mechanic Vern recruits Robin to help him investigate suspicious goings-on at a derelict railway yard on the edge of Sherwood Forest.

It’s all a bit of a lark until somebody gets killed and Robin and Fliss find themselves entangled in a police investigation.

But does death mean the end of their romantic and musical dreams, or is it only just the beginning?

Revelations of a TV Director – Royston Mayoh

by Royston Mayoh

Royston Mayoh was – and by reputation remains – one of the biggest names in British television production. In a career spanning seven decades, this writer and director turned actor and performer went from sweeping the studio floor at ABC TV studios in Didsbury, Manchester, to being recognised as one of the most prominent producers of his generation, responsible for such household names as Opportunity Knocks and This Is Your Life, earning the friendship and respect of their hosts, Hughie Green and Eamonn Andrews, in the process.
Later, his expertise was in demand in such countries as Belgium, Japan, India, Australia and the USA. He was a force behind Tommy Cooper shows, The Kenny Everett Video Cassette series and many major events.
Having found late-life fame in front of the cameras as a star of the ITV hidden camera show Off Their Rockers, nowadays he is most likely to pop up on screen in numerous commercials and cameo roles in such audience-pullers as Emmerdale and Death Comes To Pemberley. Here for the first time are his memoirs, a treat for any television aficionado. Lights! Camera! Action…
