FAREWELL BRUCE



Bruce Gallaway, BBC sound recordist, friend, travelling companion.


The very best film crew man to have with you on long filming trips, Bruce was not only a brilliant sound recordist and the warmest and kindest companion imaginable, his morphing Bar was famous throughout the BBC. My favourite Bruce's Bar moment was in the New Guinea highlands. Someone up ahead had run over a pig, a serious criminal offence in PNG. We had to wait until it was sorted out. Within minutes the back of Bruce's 4x4 was up and Bar Bruce was announced open and ready for business, complete with ices and slices.
