If you’ll excuse the poor quality of this screencast, I just found it on my external hard drive, from March 2010:

I appear for about 6 seconds in 2 different places!

    I think you will find that Edwin J Embleton (b.1907-d.2000) designed the poster, he was an old friend of mine and a local in my pub up to his death in 2000

      Hi Dan. That’s interesting, and entirely possible. I know that Edwin Embleton was Studio Manager for the Ministry of Information, and that others in the series were designed by civil servants, so he may have. Wonder if there’s any kind of evidence trail? Thanks. Bex
