A busy day for Telford on Film!

Two outings for Telford on Film today! A showing of the newly digitised film clips by Media Archives Central England at Southwater in the morning and with Madeley History Group in the afternoon. It's really fulfilling to be able to show this material that otherwise wouldn't been seen. So very grateful to HLF for the grant and the superb work that MACE have done in restoring the original films.
We did a 11.30am -12.30pm slot at Southwater and although, unbelievably we'd woken up to a white blanket of snow around the town, the sun was streaming gloriously through the windows when we set the film rolling.


Thanks to Madeley History Group for the invitation to join their film afternoon. There was a really great crowd of history enthusiasts and the TONT films complemented the History Group's cine  films both in style and era. Always a pleasure to work with them.

Reading Down Memory Lane

A visit to Apley Court   
We've been at Apley Court, one of the Wrekin Housing Trust schemes, today with our Reading Down Memory Lane presentation. This was organised through the Senior Citizens Forum. These presentations are a mix of the TONT photos and reflections and opportunities to reminisce about Telford and places people have lived.
Always lovely to meet people in residential locations and share lots of lovely memories.

A great talk!

What a fabulous talk David gave to illustrate the work that he was involved with during his time with the TDC. We were so pleased to see a lovely crowd of 45 people listen to his memories and had some great questions to round off with too. Thanks for coming along everyone.

Creating Telford's Green Environment - a talk by David Wassell

Looking forward to hosting this at Wellington Library. A great way to learn first-hand what  landscaping went on with the TDC and use the digitised photographs as a back-drop.

Telford on film premiere

We’re looking forward to premiering the new films that we’ve received back from MACE. They've done a fantastic job for us of digitising individual clips and creating two compilations which we think people will enjoy seeing. Lights... cameras... roll...!!
