Paul Shane And The Yellowcoats – The Artist

Paul Shane (1940 – 2013) was an English comedian and actor known for his television work, in particular playing Ted Bovis in Hi-de-Hi!, a 1980s BBC sitcom.

Hi-Di-Hi (Holiday Rock) – The Song

Hi-Di-Hi (Holiday Rock) is the theme song for the 1980s BBC sitcom. It was written by Jimmy Perry and sung by Paul Shane who was the actor who played Ted Bovis the camp host. Hi-de-Hi! is a BBC television sitcom shown on BBC1 from 1 January 1980 to 30 January 1988. Set between 1959 and 1960 in Maplins, a fictional holiday camp, the show was written by Jimmy Perry and David Croft, who also wrote Dad’s Army and It Ain’t Half Hot Mum amongst other programmes. The title was the greeting the campers heard and in early episodes was written Hi de Hi. The series revolved around the lives of the camp’s entertainers. Hi-Di-Hi is loosely based on Butlins, Maplins is part of a holiday camp group owned by Joe Maplin, with Yellowcoats replacing Redcoats.

The Vintage Microphone – The Shape

Modelled into the silhouette of a vintage microphone. A microphone, colloquially nicknamed mic or mike is a transducer that converts sound into an electrical signal. Microphones are used in many applications such as telephones, public address systems for concert halls and public events, motion picture production, live and recorded audio engineering, sound recording, two-way radios. Several different types of microphone are in use, which employ different methods to convert the air pressure variations of a sound wave to an electrical signal. The image used here is loosely based on the Shure Brothers microphone, model 55s, Multi-Impedance “Small Unidyne” Dynamic from 1951.

A holiday camp is a type of holiday accommodation that encourages holidaymakers to stay within the site boundary, and provides entertainment and facilities for them throughout the day. Since the 1970s, the term has fallen out of favour with terms such as resort, holiday village and holiday centre replacing it. As distinct from camping, accommodation typically consisted of chalets, accommodation buildings arranged individually or in blocks. From the 1960s onward, many camps also added static caravan accommodation, and today, many static caravans are also termed holiday camps.
