    Hi, I am the man in this advert for HRT, my role was marketing manager. This footage was originally shot for ‘Wish you were here’ travel programme featuring Judith Chalmers. It’s so refreshing to see it after all these years. BUT there is another advert which was shot I think before this featuring a family of four in a humourous way. The tag was ‘We tell you where to go, not where not to go’ and featured the Resort and Hotel Guide again. It was shot in London through our agency at that time called Bannerman and shown on the ITV Network. Can you help me find it please. Regards Ray Poynter.

      Hi Ray, thanks for sharing this great bit of information with us. I do recall the Wish You Were Here TV programme, what happened to all those travel programmes hey?

      Of the content that I have still to upload I don’t have anything as early as this (although there are some undocumented tapes) – however I will certainly keep an eye out for it and let you know if I do come across it.

      Kind regards

        Many thanks Dan, really appreciate any help you can give. The later ad was shown on national coverage in the UK it was a 30 second commercial.

        Any help would be great, ps I dont look a bit like that now….35 years does a lot to me. If you can find anything my email addy is rayhelicopter@hotmail.co.uk.
        Cheers Ray.
