|Further Information||Gazette snippet states:- "Each public homecoming for James Mitchell
is the same - an absolute knockout. The man who has projected the
heart of the old North-East into homes all over the country with his
television series, "When The Boat Comes In",is one of South Shields
best-known home-grown writers.
"In town yesterday to open the new library, he was dressed in his best
for the civic platform. He said 'I'm absolutely knocked out by the
reception. I always am.'"
