Cringeworthy Photos?
Can do..

> Reveal 🔎

Unknown age and date, but probably 15/1995, maybe? I went through a bizarre coloured-pants phase after school.. don't worry, I went back to jeans/black pants soon afterwards!!

We're geeks Jay, we were born to dress like oddballs.

Although your photo of your teenage self looks more normal than mine. I was as mischievous as I look in that photo, always into anything and everything and sometimes getting grounded for it. LOL

About 3 or 4 in these two: With my sister Karen in the first. Second photo, left to right: Karen, Mummus & me, oldest sister Josephine (Josie) far right.


Me giving Graham a riding lesson on my Yamaha Peewee-50: I'm about 6 or 7 in that one.

Here I was 21 I think. At around the time that I sold my Amiga and got into the pc. I had my first and only girlfriend then. Been single ever since.

Update.... Found those episodes on youtube. Got the year wrong, 'twas 1993.
A bit blurry, but better than nothing.

If anyone knows where I can get hold of better quality versions, that would be great.
Anyway, here are season 6 episodes 18,19 and 20, each in 2 parts.

1:16 - background, facing the window, white top
8:23 - middle bike

4:56 - looking at a phone book for some reason


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvBPJ6WawRA
Couldn't see me

8:13 -- flicking my hair back


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0s7rVhQack
didn't see me

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FsPVcNLlV9g
5:42 - I'm the blurry one in the top right of the frame
5:48 - same
6:13 - Left of shot, taking up half of the screen!
6:18 - Again


If you want to watch other episodes, someone made a huge list here.

About 15-20 of us from school got roped into being extras because one of the PE teachers knew one of the producers or something. We were chosen because of our height if I remember correctly.

Fun fact, Byker Grove wan't filmed in Byker, but Benwell at the opposite side of Newcastle. The youth club itself was an old nightclub that the BBC bought.
