Relics 4: Western Mail cutting with John Redwood

This was one of numerous newspaper cuttings I found in the attic clearout. It’s from the Western Mail and the colour of the paper suggests it was in a business supplement it used to publish. I don’t know the date, but the building we’re inspecting – Queen’s Arcade in Cardiff – opened in April 1994 and I started working at Red Dragon in October 1993.

John Redwood was the first Welsh Secretary I had anything to do with, although that wasn’t much. I imagine the reason I have my mic in my hand is that I must have been recording some ‘wildtrack’ or ‘actuality’ – the sounds of the location – or myself describing the scene.
