Here is a short letter from your favourite entertainer Jimmy Cricket introducing a new sequence of clips produced for the homepage of this website via his YouTube channel.
It’s me, Jimmy Cricket, come closer…
Thank you for coming on my website. If you are regular, a double thank you. And if you are a newcomer, a warm welcome.
I hope you enjoying browsing through and finding something of interest for you.
The newest thing I have is this… last year I came in contact with a young man called Dom Hyndman. Dom organised a charity show to send some young people to Lourdes to help wheel-bound and disabled people get around a pilgrimage, and help with their healing and give them spiritual serenity.
Dom is also a brilliant cameraman and works on all sorts of shows, from Coronation Street to the Antiques Roadshow.
He put together a very good feature for my website called The story in pictures, which was all about how I made my breakthrough into television. The next thing he did was last October when I released an album of Christmas songs for the children’s hospice Francis House; he came to the studio and did some nice footage for me.
When we were thinking about the next project to work on, we decided to go for the four series that I’ve done on Central Television in the 1980s – take the first series and concentrate on the guest stars I had on the show.
So for the next nine weeks we will have a guest artist – they range from Jim Bowen and Frank Carson to Dennis Taylor.
I hope you find it interesting and if there’s anything else you think would make the website more interesting, please feel free to let us know.
