    Some familiar faces there! H&E productions were always pretty great! Some interesting posts on the blog too. Brings back happy memories of A Level English.

      Wait till I give up Byron and get round to digitising the tapes! They go back to 1983.

      Was your name always Pichel?


  2. Louise Pichel says:

    Yes, always Pichel – you only taught me for A Level; I was part of the S Level class as well. I’m now working as an Archivist at a museum where Geoffrey Bond is a Trustee – small world!

    Library and Museum of Freemasonry. Definitely an interesting place to work!

    I’d never seen that video before – fascinating to watch though.

  4. Alice MacLeod (Coe) says:

    Wow! I loved looking through these pictures! They definitely bring back happy memories and you’ll be pleased to hear there are many of your ex-pupils who STILL talk about your productions and how you introduced us to Shakespeare way back in the 80s!

  5. Stefanie Williams says:

    Goodness! So many familiar faces. Do you have any videos of the (many) musicals H&E put on? I was in West Side Story in 1995 or 1996, and would love to see a recording of it.
