This is a documentary film made by Ken Leckenby of Leeds Mercury Movie Makers, providing a running commentary of the places and events as he goes “out and about” in Yorkshire, Bourton on the Water, West Burton in the Yorkshire Dales, the Wildfowl Trust at Slimbridge and the Leeds Canoe Club at Appletreewick.
This film is part of a Yorkshire Television series entitled Clegg’s People. It has Barnsley naturalist and broadcaster Michael Clegg providing a tour of Yorkshire’s gastronomic delights, including Pontefract cakes made at the Wilkinson factory, Bakewell pudding, fish in Scarborough and how Barnsley butcher Albert Hirst hand made his famous black puddings.
This documentary, made by Yorkshire Television and originally broadcast on 14th January, 1982, is a portrait of the life of George Lascelles, 7th Earl of Harewood. The film looks at the whole of his life, focusing on his work with the English National Opera, and the first night of Seven Deadly Sins. With commentary by Richard Whiteley, there are extensive interviews with George Lascelles talking about his war years, his divorce and his career. It also shows George Lascelles at a Leeds United football match.
The films represented here by amateur filmmaker Ronald Pringle appear to be additional footage, possibly edited from other films in the collection shot between the 1960s and 1970s.
