Series 9-12 are seen as some of the most successful years of Grange Hill. Not only did the show cover the huge Just Say No / Zammo drugs storyline, it also saw production move to the BBC’s recently purchased Elstree studios, as well as having even more episodes per series than ever before. The ‘man in charge’ during this time was producer Ronald Smedley. As part of our 40th Anniversary celebrations, Grange Hill Gold are proud to present our exclusive interview with the ‘real’ headteacher of Grange Hill!
“Looking forward to see my interview on line – you’d better not wait much longer as my 90th birthday comes nearer and nearer and the weather colder and colder!” Ronald told us. You can read our exclusive interview here.
