Silver gelatin print by Sport & General Press Agency, Ltd., dated 7 February 1964. Printed caption on verso reads: "A woman of many talents is Miss Roberta Leigh, writer and producer of the successful children's programmes 'Space Patrol' and 'Torchy' on I.T.V. every week. Since 1957 she has been responsible for over 200 half hour episodes. So very busy is Miss Leigh that she never has time to see her own programmes on TV so she has bought a Perdio portable television set to enable her to look it at any time".
