TV filming in Cassiobury Park.
In the early 70's (1971 or 1972) the BBC recorded a sketch for the Marty Feldman Show in Cassiobury Park. It involved some sort of race that MF won and a photo appeared in the Watford Observer showing our hero running across the bridge over the Cassiobury canal lock. He is clutching a "trophy" which is a small tankard which was a christening gift to one of my twin sons. A relative was the cameraman that day and when the director realised there was no "trophy" available my relative called on me to supply something suitable. We still have the tankard and the cutting from the Observer is probably in the attic somewhere but the photo may be in your archives.
