    Hi Stephen - just wondered if you'd found any more of those 1970 call sheets, as posted earlier on this thread ?

    Thanks for those call sheets Stephen and Aitch -always fascinating to see who was doing what and when ! Was hoping that that Stephen might have had some more studio schedules from 1970 as featured in the second post on this thread, or was that the earliest you found ? Did you do any more work in Pinewood in 1970 Aitch ? The Persuaders and UFO were both filming then in addition to The Devils.

    When I joined the staff at Pinewood in August, 1968 I used to get off the coach at the lodge entrance of the studio every morning, walk up the path to the administration building, say good morning to Tom at the entrance and, after a quick cup of tea in the large canteen which joined the admin block, I would then walk over to a reception area which intersected two long corridors at the corner of Stage 'D'. The corridor to the left connected four stages D through A. The corridor straight ahead ran alongside D stage which led to cutting rooms and then to the Sound Department. In this reception area was a desk where a security guard sat and laid out in front of him were piles of call sheets and schedules for the various productions. You didn't have to work on any particular production, as was the case with me, so anyone could just help themselves to any of them. I wish now I taken more of them when I had the opportunity.

    I am sure I walked passed Aitch many a time on the way to the canteen at lunch time, or on the way to the bar via the restaurant.

    I still have some more call sheets which I will put up here soon, mostly on "Diamonds Are Forever".

    Hi Paul, I lived in various places in lodgings, Rayner's Lane mostly. My parents lived in Essex in Brentwood then Shoeburyness so it was difficult to live at home as I didn't own a car.

    Cooper S, I think that is the only schedule I have from that period. I have couple of others but they were for individual films, that I worked on later, not connected with Pinewood which I plan to put up at some point.

    LOL Probably on loan from James Robertson Justice, given Pinewood's tendency to 'keep it in the family'...

    Hi dvdman, no I didn't buy it. I am not a big fan of the Superman sequels, except for the Dick Donner Cut of Superman 2 which I have on blu-ray.
