Bygone Bassingham

£12.99

In 1958 cine enthusiasts Jim Donnelly and Ken Franklin filmed village life the year round. Their shots included villagers, streets, houses and businesses and many community activities. They filmed farm workers harvesting with the machinery of the day, the school sports, the summer floods, cricket, tennis and bowls matches etc. etc. Three of their four cine reels survived – only to be lost again after one VHS tape was made. Producer Andrew Blow worked from this VHS tape, improving every shot by using the digital tools of today to create a memorable DVD now treasured by the villagers. Supported by the Bassingham Heritage And Community Association. Duration 48 minutes.
