Alan's interview became one of the most memorable ones in our early days. A larger than life character who took us through the most desperate moment of his life where he considered becoming just another statistic through to stories of patience, acceptance and ultimately the love he shares with all the children (not just his) and his third wife of many years. 'That's it we'll be together forever' he claimed, shortly before chastising her for bursting in mid-answer, causing us to re-set the production team and ask a question again. They gave us no choice but to stay an extra hour and have tea with them. Our cameraman said on the way out, 'he's right, they will be together forever' and we all nodded in agreement.
