  1. again: fitting as a new glove !
    (must update on donald & aitchison, though)

  2. Donald & Aitchison are a firm of opticians who have branches all over the UK. the voice over is a short extract from a record they used to give out to new employees in the 1970s. A lot of firms did this sort of thing - on the Table Matters EP by Storm Bugs for example there is a track called 'Make Customers Matter' which has some useful information by the head of WH Smith on how to make every branch "your favourite shop in the town". This was from a cassette I found in a store cupboard when working in a bookshop in 1979.

  3. ah! treasures from times gone by... today that would probably be done in video ?
