    In the section about sheep shearing, the gentleman in blue holding the microphone for Godfrey Bowen the shearer is my father, Phil Anderson. I have an extensive file of press and publicity stills taken during the period 1958 to 1965 of the touring demonstrations of the \"Bowen Technique\". I am unsure of the protocols of posting contact details here, but anybody interested in them can post a reply to this comment. Glen Anderson.
