Alan 'Hoppity' Hayball...the Broom Balancing years!

Back in the day when I was 'world champion' broom balancer!
Does anybody remember seeing me on 'Day by Day'  ITV southern news prog or on 'great british eccentrics' - on 'Nationwide- BBC' I was balancing a broom standing on two househod bricks in Southampton studio with one eye on Tv monitor, speaking to Sue Lawley in London. If anyone has footage...all the better! Trouble is, few people had video recorders 33 years ago!
