In a nutshell, it’s about how I started filming in the 1970s, the early equipment and the people I met as well as the different subjects I covered. How I researched Lymington, the filming, the challenges, the funny things that happened and the interesting odd bits I discovered. Support from St. Barbe and so many others.
