  1. Bygones

    Bygones is an Anglia Television documentary series exploring East Anglian history and traditional rural crafts first aired in 1967. The series, and in particular the regular Bygones Specials featured many interviews with people who used to do traditional work now lost to history and investigation and preservation of surviving East Anglian culture. Bygones was presented by Dick Joice from 1967 until his retirement in 1987 when the film historian John Huntley took over. It was made by the Norwich-based television company Anglia for the ITV network. The series was discontinued in 1989, but briefly brought back by Anglia TV in 2007 following an overwhelming vote from viewers on a programme they wanted reinstated. It features mystery objects where the audience are asked to write in and guess what the implement's original function was. Dick Joice's collection of objects which featured in Bygones has been on display at Holkham Hall, Norfolk since 1979, in what was once the stables. Some of the most memorable editions of Bygones were documentaries directed by Geoffrey Weaver in the Seventies. "The Harvest" authentically re-created a harvest field around the turn of the 20th century, while "Gone For a Burton" followed the seasonal trip of East Anglian agricultural workers to work in the Burton upon Trent maltings after the hay and grain harvests.
