Ian Hendry – This Is Your Life


On the day of recording Ian Hendry was suffering from ‘red flu’, which was affecting the country in 1978. There were even some fears as to whether the show would go ahead.

In the end it did and the ‘interception’ by Eamonn Andrews and Patrick Macnee – both dressed as Steed – created a classic ‘This Is Your Life‘ moment and introduction for the show.
