An animated film produced by Sheila Graber with music performed by Tom Gilfellon. The history of the River Tyne, from the source in Scotland to the mouth at South Shields, is pictured using pastel, paintings, drawings, personal photographs and documentary film footage.
A pastel animation produced by Sheila Graber and based upon the short story by Sid Chaplin. Narrated by north east broadcaster Mike Neville the film tells the story of Geordie, a miner, and his love for his pigeons and the trials and tribulations of his passion which is very popular around the region. The face of Sid Chaplin is used as Geordie.
This tongue-in-cheek promotional film was produced for the North East Region of the Institute of Amateur Cinematographers (NERIAC), which hosted the national IAC Annual General Meeting and film festival in Newcastle in October 1987. It was written and directed by Michael Gough, a member of the Newcastle & District Amateur Cinematographers’ Association.
