Blue Peter, sometime in the 70s

To this day, Blue Peter maintains its practice of avoiding using commercial names on air. This was started during the 1960s and 70s by the show's editor, Biddy Baxter.

This policy led to the invention of the phrase 'sticky-backed plastic' back in the 1970s for the products marketed under the trade names Fablon and Coverlon. Sellotape was often referred to by the term 'sticky tape', barring one incident in which John Noakes accidentally used the trade name and remarked as an aside - "I'll get shot for that".

Born in 1968, Sean went to Bradford Art College in the late eighties, then worked through litho printers, advertising and marketing agencies as a paste up artist, graphic designer and art director.

He now lives and works in the west country city of Bath.
