    Here's some home movie footage my dad took in 1963 at the location filming for 'Crooks in Cloisters'. Quality's not brilliant, the transfer's a little dark, but interesting all the same!

    Many thanks for that, there is something so evocative about old cine film.

    Was that Ronnie Knight with Babs? My friend met Ronald Fraser in a pub shortly before he died, said he was one of the nicest people you could ever meet.

    Yes, I'm sure it's Ronnie Knight. It's nice to see how relaxed and informal things seemed back then - none of the security you see now with closed sets. Everyone just walking about, chatting and signing a few autographs. I've just had this transferred to DVD as it hadn't been seen for about 20 years.

    I'm sure if Babs or Bernard saw the clip they'd be chuffed.



    Once again, many thanks

    have to agree, this film is a quality gem just ripe for an afternoon viewing, can't understand why it hasn't got a dvd release yet.
