Gainsborough U3A’s latest meeting featured the talk Oprah Winfrey Touched My Elbow by journalist Graham Keal.

The titles came from a 1988 interview Graham did with Oprah Winfrey in London and how she had fleetingly touched his elbow as she left at the end.

He also talked about interviews he did with Eric Morecambe which showed this comedian’s humility.

At that time was a really well known star and Graham was impressed at his readiness to spend time being interviewed by a young journalist from a small paper in Sleaford.

Eric replied that it was those sort of people who had help put him where he was.

Graham also talked of many little moments when celebrities might have been more careful had they known they would have been the cause of such good entertainment in years to come

The art group also put on an exhibition, which included portraits, landscapes and still-lifes.
