Default Bob Bell

Sorry to have to report this, but I've been told that long serving Gerry Anderson associate Bob Bell has just died at the age of 91.

91!?!?! I suppose he must have been. I had a job interview with Bob Bell about twenty years ago over at Bray studios. I remember it because my car got a flat tyre (the worst possible time) on the way there and I was half an hour late. I was worried that being late for an interview wouldn't go down well but Bob was cool about it. I think my slightly grubby hands might've suggested I was being genuine and not making a lame excuse for being late. He was very friendly and even showed me around the studio. Sad to hear of his passing. He was a gentleman.

There are loads of the crew left - surprising considering how long ago it was...

Sadly it's becoming all to common now to say goodbye to old friends. Bye bye Bob and thank you.
