This is one of a collection of films made by the Selby Cine Club. This film provides a wonderful overview of the town of Selby as it was in 1965 and is accompanied by an interesting historical commentary. It shows pedestrians and traffic in the town centre, many of the shops, and includes the Toll Bridge, the Monday market, the Reverend John Kent giving a tour of the Abbey, the shipyard, the BOCM Mill, and a Council meeting.
Part of the Calendar Magazine series, this programme looks at an amateur group of actors from Huddersfield who are making a video production of Dracula with a woman playing the title role.
A series of short Tyne Tees Television news inserts for the North East News on 15 July 1963, which include a ceremony of "laying sod" at Team Valley Trading Estate for a new factory; a school exchange visit to the North East by Italian and German schoolchildren; a German schoolgirl arrives at Newcastle Central Station on a visit to Wallsend; vox pops with customers in a Newcastle pub about the 1 penny increase on the price of a pint of beer; and a feature on the traditional use of scissors for sheep shearing at a farm in Weardale.
A short comic film by Michael Gough, with wife Linda behind the camera, of a BBC North East film crew shooting members of the Newcastle & District Amateur Cinematographers' Association (ACA) shooting a film on the Gateshead Quayside. The BBC production entitled ‘Moviesmakers Special’ was a special programme transmitted in 1977 as part of the association’s 50th anniversary. The film features Michael Gough as the main protagonist of the ACA film and the film switches between each of the two film crews in a disjointed manner.
