I do get some slant on DCT working practices mid 50s to the early 60s via Leo Baxendale's book! Top say that it was a `strict` regime would be a bit mild! Only a couple of management staff come across as `flexible`; one in particular is Iain Chisholm. Leo instantly saw a more enlightened man in Iain and they stayed good friends long after Leo left DCT!

If ever a comic got the right editor to helm it `Sparky` was the lucky recipient of Iain's more `progressive` stewardship circa late 68, early 69. No disrespect to previous Editor Willy Mann, but Iain was the man for those times -what with a big surge in `wacky-off the wall` humour in the media such a Monty Python and the `Q` series! I have said it before- but to repeat again, from 1969-in my view- Sparky was the most progressive and experimental of the five DCT `fun titles and it's down to `Chiz`.
