“Hi Carlo, I herein confirm you have my permission to use my Back Chat interview and photos for inclusion on the back Chat website.”
David Myers (1st March 2021)
David Myers is a quiet, unassuming man whose thorough knowledge of film and sound engineering has played a pivotal part in the success of Back-Chat.
In our chat we discuss Coronavirus and mental health and the way our government has handled the pandemic in the UK.
Family Christmases and holidays add a lighter side to our chat before we move on to the facial birthmark that David had operated on as a child and how it was handled by David and others.
David, a lifelong bachelor, worked at Crompton Parkinson’s for 34 years and, following the closure of the factory in 2004. happily retrained as a driving instructor.
His overwhelming interest for many years has been amateur film-making at which he has excelled – to have the renowned TV personality and steeplejack Fred Dibner tell you he has watched your film about a traction engine several times is pretty good praise!

Recording this social history, chatting to different people about a whole host of subjects is a real pleasure, such an interesting and I think worthwhile project for people to listen to both now and in years to come.
