30 EVERGREEN Autumn JOHN NOAKES (continued) One of the most popular presenters on Blue Peter, the late John Noakes was born John Bottomley at Shelf near Bradford in Yorkshire, but took his surname from his stepfather, the trumpeter Alfie Noakes. A daredevil, Noakes broke all the producer’s rules for a programme which began as Children’s Television Club from the BBC studios in Manchester with outside broadcasts featuring a young Judith Chalmers. “Get down, Shep!” was Noakes’s most famous quote about his enthusiastic but faithful pet dog. John Noakes with his inseparable companion, Shep as a puppy. ROGER MOORE AND THE OVALTINEYS The late Roger Moore (left) began his acting career on radio with the BFN (British Forces Network) in Hamburg after the war. He was in good company because fellow actors in The Adventures of Robin Hood included Bryan Forbes, Nigel Davenport, Cliff Michelmore, Raymond Baxter, Keith Fordyce and Geraint Evans, the latter as a wandering minstrel who later became an opera star.

Currently Musical Director of the English Ballet he has worked with many other orchestras, especially associated on the recording front with the Royal Ballet Sinfonia and City of Prague Symphony Orchestra. In 2009 he succeeded Ernest Tomlinson as Chairman of the Light Music Society to which he has since made an extremely valuable contribution. He has also appeared many times with the BBC Concert Orchestra particularly on Friday Night is Music Night, and has also appeared at The Proms, notably in a dance-based “Strictly” concert narrated by Katie Derham. Congratulations on your award and keep up the good work Gavin. of which was Ivy Benson’s All Girl Band with whom he got on very well. Moore’s BFN producer was Sgt. Trevor Hill who, when he heard his CO, Col. “Bunny” Warren, speak said, “You’re the voice of the Chief Ovaltiney,” (see Evergreen, Spring 2001). Warren’s immediate response was “Tell anyone and I’ll kill you!” Hill, however, took great delight in informing Lt. Moore of the fact and also suggested he might do better as a model rather than an actor. Moore later responded with the message “Still acting and not doing too badly!” an article about the author H.E. Bates (below), written by his granddaughter, Victoria Wicks. Bates’ stories, including The Darling Buds of May (see Evergreen, Summer 2017), are wellknown but his wartime writing has, until now, been largely overlooked. H.E.
