Roger Brokenshire again
Met up with Roger B again to discuss his career before The Reaction - partly because I wanted to get a feel for the kind of places that The Reaction played in the Torquay area. The key player here was Lionel Digby who was a very active and influential impressario in Torquay in the sixties...
He now, apparently, runs a successful costume hire business. Roger also described his appearance on the Carroll Levers show, which preceded Opportunity Knocks and indeed provided the template for it. Here is Roger pointing to himself singing in the City Hall as part of the show. I think he was eight at the time.
