The Archers

Postby ken » Wed Apr 06, 2011 9:38 pm

Some years ago I was given this photograph. Sitting is Geoffrey Webb, one of the the original writers of the Archers, who was a Dursley man. The original brief was for a six week series of informative programmes mainly for farmers. Standing behind him is a farmer from Coaley, who was his technical adviser, I'm afraid that I have forgotten his name. The story goes that this was the man who was the inspiration for Dan Archer. The village of Ambridge derived from Cambridge by dropping the C. Can anyone name the farmer and confirm the story.
