Alan Eaglesfield and The Joy of Motoring

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.

No, I'm not, but someone had to do this!

I'm wondering what it says about my work day that every hour or so I keep checking back to see if you've found him...

I think it says that this blog is even more exciting than your (undoubtedly thrilling) work day.

Did you find him?

I don't think Mr Eaglesfield particularly wanted to be found.

I am very sorry to say that Alan Eaglesfield passed away in March this year

Alan Eaglesfield sadly, passed over on 20 February 2010.
I told him you were looking for him in 2009, he denied it was him and in January 2010, he admitted it was him and said you were right, he didn't want to be found.
I will miss him....
