On Thursday, BBC4 screened a  rather delightful drama about the love affair between photographer David Bailey and Jean Shrimpton called We’ll Take Manhattan. Did you notice the Harrison Marks calendar hanging on the wall early on in the programme?  If I’m not mistaken September 1962 featuring Pam.

Douglas Webb was the stills photographer during the production of Wendy Toye’s The King’s Breakfast. You can see a brief selection of some of the photos he took on the Ronald Searle blogspot.
