SOCO ROAD SHOW 2000       (Library ref no. 51)

This donation is the first such from the SoCo Region, being a compilation of the annual competition 2000 entries. Also included are scenes of the awards being made by Chairman Alan Creamer, FACI (which are NOT included in the running times).

1. DELIVERING THE NEWS
Philip Marshman
A documentary telling about the process of getting newspapers from the distributors to your front door. A 'local' newsagent talks to camera and we see the boys and girls going out on their bikes.

Documentary
5.mins


2. LIFEBOAT
Bruce Dawes
Filmed at the Royal National Lifeboat Collection at Chatham, this movie deals with the history and restoration of several types of lifeboats from across the years. There is also an informative and clearly spoken commentary. One interesting point which arose (from among many) was how the self-righting boat was developed.

Documentary
16.mins


3. THE STAFF ROOM AT TIFFIN SCHOOL
Daniel Greenway ( for Alfred Road Productions)
A number of teachers at the school talk about both their careers and their hobbies; also about how things have changed in their profession since they first started. Instead of an off-camera voice, the questions are drawn (and rubbed off) in chalk on a blackboard - a nice touch!

Documentary
13.mins


4. LAKES & MOUNTAINS
John Davies
An interesting and visually attractive movie about the items of the title, taken on holiday in the Alps. The commentary is nicely delivered in an informal style by Melanie Davies.

Travel
16.mins


5. PLANETS
Bristol Film & Video Society
A brilliant comedy in which Geoff Salter does a lovely impression of a young Patrick Moore telling us all about the various planets, their sizes and their distances from the Earth. Nicely photographed and edited, and with good computer effects. Directed by Graham Eggar.

Humour
14.mins


6. BROOK MEADOW
Michael Camps
A most attractive-looking movie showing the various times of the year at the location of the title - in Warwickshire. Also, a lot of the appeal is provided by the good, informative commentary, spoken in a most relaxed style as though speaking off the cuff (although it probably wasn't) by Rachel Christopher, but it's exactly what is required.

Documentary
17.mins


7. GLORIOUS DEVON
Andrew Trevett
Another attractive look at a local area - this time the county of the title. Included, among others, are Newton Abbot, Torquay and Brixham, which a lot of people have enjoyed on their Summer holidays over the years.

Donated by SoCo
