Just before Christmas, BBC Wales, on behalf of The One Show, were recording in East Tilbury library and included the Bata Heritage Centre archives and, in particular, details found in our staff records. This involved genealogy research (along the lines of the “Who Do you Think You Are” programme) about someone who worked at British Bata and our Chairman, Mike Tarbard, found that he joined in March 1947. The short film is about a Grays man searching for information about his father, whom he last saw in the mid-1940s. We understand that the feature will be broadcast during the One Show on Wednesday, 8 March 2017 which starts at 7:00pm. If the filming is as on the day, then Mike may have a brief cameo role! Keep an eye out for it!
