We welcomed a BBC crew to Bounds Green this afternoon, they were here to film some of our bowlers talking about their experiences with the drug Statins. It was for a programme called Health, Truth or Scare, which will be aired on BBC1, the series starts on the 27th April.
They took lots of shots of feet, bowls and the bowlers doing their thing, then Kevin revealed his bright orange socks and had a go at bowling himself, with some top tips from Steve. He was a very promising beginner indeed!
Then Bob, Margaret and John with two cameras and a bright light on them, and still managed to have a really natural conversation! They were excellent and and anyone voicing their opinions and sharing their experience of this very tricky but useful drug is doing a lot of people a big favour. We will let you know when it’s aired, in the meantime thanks to all the bowlers for their great support this afternoon and to Kevin, Sarah, Greg and Katy for making it such a fun and interesting experience.
