But who are they all?

Presumably the guy in the top photo with Gus Honeybun is one of the announcers.

Apart from Larry Grayson, I don’t know who’s in the middle photos either.

We were hoping our readers would tell us! For some very odd reason these were issued with exactly zero context from Westward. Probably they assumed that viewers would already know?

I reckon that’s a young Ian Stirling with Larry Grayson. Apparently, Ian joined Westward full-time in 1975.

I also reckon that’s Westward chairman Peter Cadbury just above the words “West Country” in the bottom picture. Can’t make out if it’s a staff meeting or people queueing to be the audience for a prohgramme, though there’s one chap looking like he’s having a drink two-thirds up to the right of the photo.

I agree with Eddie, I think that is Ian Stirling posing with the camera and Larry Grayson.

A bit of digging online reveals that the presenter with the glasses and white tie is Chris Fear, who was also commentator when Westward showed a local football match, and the large photo is from an open day with proceeds going to charity.
