A few familiar faces (can't remember any names) and dIdn't spot myself... but nice to see inside the theatre again and the noise in the dining hall really took me back!

Looking forward to seeing the Hertford version...

Thank You

The Hertford version is really interesting-like a guided tour. The dorm looks as spartan as it did 10years earlier apart from the posters on the walls. I think we had them stuck in our bedside lockers; later at probably 14/15yrs old, we had 'cubies'-which were brand new in ?late 6o's/early 70's- and we put up posters etc on those walls.In the video, they looked exactly as I remembered them. All this evoked so many memories of 40years ago, it was quite emotional to watch it .

Well spotted! It is definitely me along with Nicki Dallison and Ruth Bryant i think!

So am I now forgiven for not recognising you last Old Blues' Day, Vonny?

Thanks, some bits look so familiar and arouse many old memories. When were the black-and-white photos from?

Finally got round to watching part 1 - Ben Monaghan hosting squits tea, where I think we may have the first 'TV' appearance of James (Simon) D'arcy about 5.30 in, perhaps Madonna saw this before casting him in WE?

When did table cloths in dining hall disappear? The tables look so very different without them! I'm sure we didn't have any hurdles when I was there!

Wonderful to see so much of Hertford again - although it was a few years after my time, nevertheless the uniforms, buildings, and several of the staff brought back so many memories.

I agree with Jo - not after my time - my time exactly! - but so many memories... I haven't been back since 85!

Shame it's so hard to see faces... I think I spotted Caron Scott & Fiona Stevens in chapel but I can't imagine they would have been sitting next to each other! maybe it was Penny Richards, instead..

Thank you.

These are great videos - bring back all sorts of memories!
Have you got the later ones with original audio too?
