Speaking from the Yukon, Don describes joining the BBC at Alexandra Palace in the late 1950s. As a Canadian working in News, he remembers covering Princess Margaret’s wedding from Scotland Yard, an A bomb test in the Sahara, smog, prematurely putting Richard Baker on air and class distinctions between BBC white coats ad brown coats in the early, but primitive days of television.
