OTD: Crossroads Protest Record

On this Day, June 8th 1981.

A small demonstration outside ATV Centre in Birmingham saw fans of soap Crossroads protesting at the sacking of Noele Gordon from the long running soap.

Journalist Bill Buckley, from Wolverhampton, performed a song he has written, ‘Meg is Magic‘. The song failed to save Noele and her character of Meg Mortimer sailed off on the QE2 on November 11th the same year.

On this Day is not associated with the Media Archive for Central England.
