About the event

The Exeter Group would like to invite you to their talk with speaker Alex Leger.

Luck played its part when Alex joined the Blue Peter programme in 1975, the presenters were John Noakes, Peter Purves and Lesley Judd. 

Alex will be describing pivotal events in broadcasting and memorable encounters with an erupting volcano, gorillas in Uganda and a life-threatening storm at sea. other events like John Noakes climbing Nelson's Column secured his position as a producer for 36 years. Others caused a stir like Lulu the baby elephant who ran amok and created probably the funniest moment in Blue Peter history.

The talk will last about an hour with time for questions.

Following the talk, an afternoon finger buffet will be provided with tea and coffee. Free parking available
