Welcome from Doraisinmyheart
« on: April 27, 2013, 11:20:36 AM »
Hi,
      My name is Ian & i have felt compelled to join up after revisiting all 39 episodes of Follyfoot on DVD.This wonderful series bought back so many memories of sunday afternoon afternoons as a nine year old, I remember falling in love with Gillian Blake at first sight & the girls at my school copied her hairstyle.I have not yet had the time to visit all the posts so please bear with me , I would love to see.......


 YORKSHIRE TV MAKING A FOLLYFOOT REUNION PROGRAMME

 ALL 39 EPISODES REMASTERED WITH AUDIO COMMENTARIES WITH GILLIAN & STEVE & CREW

MUSIC FROM THE FOLLYFOOT LP DIGITALLY REMASTERED ON CD

YEARLY FANS REUNION WITH CAST & CREW

I have just received Jane Royston's book through the post this morning & look forward to reading it, so please forgive me  for joining late

i look forward to getting involved

Hi Ian

A very warm welcome to you, glad you have found us  >33<

I would love all of the above to happen! I suppose the nearest we've had to a Follyfoot reunion programme was the Lights Camera Action programme.

thank you
                i wonder if we could ask Yorkshire tv & The Harewood Estate to agree to make a one hour Reunion programme with the cast & crew , the film you posted to me was like a starter on a menu .

Hi Ian

You are obviously a proper Follyfoot fan and have been for the full 40+ years. Hope some of your suggestions can be made possible. There has already been lots of progress for fans with commercially remastered 39 episodes, the Jane Royston book 'Follyfoot Remembered', 'Lights Camera Action', and a 40th reunion with the iconic couple organised by friends of FF.  I've got to know more about FF in the past five years than in the previous 35 years. Your suggestion of a digital CD from the original LP is interesting and I would agree with that as another 'souvenir'. :)

Hi Dave,
             I plan to contact Yorkshire TV about making a reunion programme which in turn could be made into a DVD ,It's a crying shame that this gem has been overlooked when we are saturated with reality TV .

Totally agree!

Jane Royston tried her very best to get the series back on TV but no one seemed interested  >:( Good luck with your letter, let us know what they say  >41<

I have just phoned ITV viewer services they will forward the suggestion & stated that there are no promises ,I suggested ITV bring back the program back on either itv 3 or 4 .The next step is the letter , hopefully will get a reply from the top.
