Bernard Burke at Burnage Library

It was a real pleasure to welcome Bernard and Eva Burke to Burnage Library this afternoon. Bernard treated the group with his experiences of both outside broadcasting and sound-control in the television studios, regaling us with his encounters with the great and good of commercial television over three decades. Mention was made of work with Ken Dodd, Kenny Everett, the commentator Brian Moore, Judith Chalmers on ‘Wish You Were Here’, Eamonn Andrews on ‘This is Your Life’, his meeting five Prime Ministers along with many, many other memories!


We’d like to thank them both for taking the time to speak to us and recommend anybody who’s interested in the subject take a look at his book, ‘Where has the Time Gone?’  He’s generously donated a copy to Burnage Library, so you’re welcome to pop into the library (meeting room) and have a look.
