This weekend’s Radio Times Television Festival will bring you … a young Mary Berry.
A special session at the festival will showcase newly unearthed footage from her cookery show Good Afternoon, which she made for Thames Television in 1973.
Book tickets: TV Dinners with Tom Kerridge
The clips, which will be shown at a special event open to the public at the BFI, will see her bake a special Easter cake (below) and also rather sweetly pronounce the word margarine with a hard ‘g’ – the standard pronunciation back then.
Viewers will also see a younger Judith Chalmers by Berry’s side as she bakes.
Saturday’s session, From the BFI National Archive: TV Dinners with Tom Kerridge, is on Saturday 8 April at 4.30pm. Tickets are still available at the BFI website.
Highlights from the archive also promises classic clips of the likes of Fanny Cradock and a young Delia Smith as well as horror legend Vincent Price, from the ITV series Cooking Price Wise.
