Overnight I received the following sad news from Andre Ingram (BBC SCPD 1977 to 1996):
It is with great sadness that I bring the news of the passing of Ian Andy Andrews last night after a very short period of illness following a fall.
David , Ian’s son has asked me to say a few words at the funeral.
I have known Ian and David for 34 years and of that time whilst I was in SCPD telecine and later VT section he guided me and many others in his kind gentle manner.
I would like some possible reminiscences of other past BBC staff members.
Could you possibly send out an email asking people to contact me.
I will email you when I know the details of the funeral.
I’ll post further details as I receive them.
