Do you know Alan Eaglesfield? Are you Alan Eaglesfield?
A little less than a year ago I wrote a post on this blog about how Alan coined the phrase 'Spaghetti Junction' when he was a sub on the Birmingham Evening Mail. As I recall, I took the information from Wikipedia (naughty, I know).
Then, earlier this week, I received an email from Paola Rezzilli, an assistant producer for a TV company currently making a programme for BBC4 called The Joy of Motoring.
Paola is hoping to speak to Alan about coming up with the phrase 'Spaghetti Junction' but doesn't know his whereabouts or a way of contacting him. I told her I would put a request for information on this blog – and here it is.
So if you know Alan Eaglesfield, or if you are Alan Eaglesfield (and want to contribute to a TV show called The Joy of Motoring), please email The Engine Room or leave a comment on this post.
