Our lovely assistant

The BBC has made a little video, featuring 50 broadcasters who got some sort of start in BBC Local Radio, in anticipation of the 50th Anniversary of the service. Guess who this is... answer below.

It's Kathryn Adie, CBE, DL, in her days as a station assistant at Radio Durham. She's lasted longer than the station. It started in 1968, but was closed in 1972, when the Government decided to limit the BBC to twenty stations, and the resources were moved to Carlisle, now Radio Cumbria. Coverage of County Durham falls between Radio Newcastle and BBC Tees.
