Old Letters
« on: July 11, 2011, 10:13:06 PM »
Hi Everyone

FollyfootFanForever (FFF) has sent me these interesting letters for you all to see.

A letter from Yorkshire Television (YTV) about the 1980s repeat of Follyfoot.  FollyfootFanForever (FFF) received quite a few replies from Yorkshire Television when he was researching and kept them all.

Here’s two more of FFF’s reply letters when he was researching Follyfoot many years ago... and he says:

As you can see, I sometimes had a reply that wasn’t what I wanted to hear. Notice the letter I had back when I was trying to buy Follyfoot videos all those years ago, being told they were not available to purchase.  How times change!  I have all the DVDs, official release ones and unofficial release ones.

Also, notice the name of the farm on the other letter that I was told was a Follyfoot location... the wrong one!  Obviously it seems they were trying to keep the location a secret, even then.

I hope these are of interest to everyone.  I have a few more which I will dig out later.

That was very interesting to see, thanks for FollyfootFanForever and Loopy for posting them. Harewood Avenue...  ???
Does anybody know why the location was such a big secret back then?

Thanks FollyfootFanForever for sharing these.

Maybe the location was kept a secret because they didn't want tons of visitors coming by and looking at the buildings?
Cheers,
Sabrina

But perhaps 50 teenagers all shouting for Steve and Gillian in the middle of a tender scene wouldn't have had quite the same effect!   :)

Not to mention what the horses might have thought about it  :o  ::)

This is a useful addition to the Follyfoot archives Follyfootfanforever (FFF)  :)

Although much of the content of your replies to FF enquiries were either vague, misleading or unproductive, they are an attestation of your longtime FF interest.

Typewriter monospacing looks odd these days.

Thanks FFF - how interesting that YTV put out an update 15 years after the show finished...there was obviously enough interest from viewers  :) :)
Cheers,
