Having seen it for real beamed from barges on the Medway, Chairman Sue thought that a viewing of the DVD Battle of Britain in more comfortable surroundings of the House would be popular with members.
This proved to be the case with an enthusiastic gathering of members and guests settling down to listen to Malcolm Wright, project manager, take us through the process of producing the dvd.
He explained how, as far as possible, everything was done locally, from the cast, to locations, provision of costumes, wigs, and all the technical stuff.
Malcolm’s introductory talk was very informative and accompanied by an interesting powerpoint presentation, before we went into the film itself.
It was very interesting seeing it for the second time. There were oohs and ahhs, and locations were recognised, and indeed some of the cast who happened to be sitting in the audience.
A very enjoyable evening indeed.
