Watching a documentary on BBC TV, I spotted two engravings of Tintern Abbey which looked familiar, though I didn't expect them to be mine. When the credits rolled, there was my name - I can't stop grinning!
The programme was 'Great British Railway Journeys' with Michael Portillo making a journey through South Wales. The images are these two.

Yay! Let's hope you get repeat fees!

Fat chance! But I shall certainly look at credits a little closer from now on.

Well spotted ,,,
Must be quite something to appear on the Beeb...

It's only the second time I've seen any of my work on TV (although, of course, I can't claim credit for the engravings themselves just the scanning and a lot of cleaning up!). The first time was when I did some design work for a government department in the 1980s and it appeared in news programmes. This is certainly the first time I've seen my name on TV!

Rather late to the party as usual. Nice find that Linda. I've seen the iStockphoto credit on various BBC programs, but I hadn't noticed the specific credit before. I shall have look more closely in future!
Repeat fees indeed Roger! Wouldn't that be nice!

'Auntie' uses independent production companies now, so it's probably not quite as exciting as it would have been once.
I am certainly studying the credits now - I never bothered before I accidentally saw my name! - and on catching up with the episode of the series from last Friday, I saw three more iStock names: Duncan Walker, Classix and Georgios Kollidas. This is the third series of these lovely programmes - so goodness knows how many other names I've missed!
