John Miller who gave an excellent talk entitled “The Show Must Go On”. This was the fourth talk given by John to the Club, previously giving an account of his time as a BBC employee. This talk focussed on John’s time as a freelance producer working for the BBC and other organisations. A lot of his time was spent setting up exhibitions at national venues where many stars of the entertainment and sport worlds were participating. A thoroughly interesting and engaging talk.
