I have no idea why I didn’t think of this before…but I was looking at the vids that Robert recorded at the Grand Promenade 2007, when I suddenly wondered if there were any posted on YouTube.  Doh!  So here is one from last year’s Promenade…and can you spot Miriam, the lady in red halfway through, being filmed for Countryfile…?

    The Countryfile lady is about half-way through…a little way behind her is a lady in what looks like a white nightgown…I called her Mrs Rochester…then a gentleman turns and smiles at the person filming.

    Talking of spoiling the effect…there are one ot two ladies with shoulder bags and a gentleman in an eighteeth century fancy-dress costume (red coat and tricorn hat) with a backpack, too…oh, dear! It makes it harder to pretend that you have travelled back in time…spoil sports!!

    OK…to make it easier…watch out for a chap in a black and white top walk from left to right, about half way through. The shadow of the cameraman will then come into the picture followed by the cameraman. Then three ladies, the one in the centre is from Countryfile (Miriam?).When these pass by, a gentleman and lady turn and acknowledge the person filming…these are Robin and Sue Seals from Farthingale costumiers.

    Did you spot the lady all dressed in correct regencey attire, moving at the speed of a gazelle and a Blue, Synthetic fibre back pack on her back?? I roared with laughter at this, but perhaps I\’m perverse?? xx Odd that you should comment on this now as I was just thinking about the forthcoming one in September, and you know why don\’t you Mrs?? When we meet up I\’ll be able to carry your back Pack for you. :op xx

    There were a couple who looked really tall…on the whole, most of the people are about average height…or little shorties like me. Maybe really tall people feel too conspicuous…or should I say more conspicuous.
