Once again we were pleased to welcome our old friend Alan Copeland, who this time visited to present his Big Picture Show, a varied selection of AV sequences. Some were Alan's own work, and the rest from notable AV workers around the country, including well-known names in this field such as Ian Bateman and Maureen Albright.
The subject range was very wide, including trips to living museums such as Beamish,St. fagans and local Milestones in Basingstoke. We also had cute animal friendships, the grisly story oh Hampden Pye, trips to Oxford,Portmeirion and Oxford. Not forgetting of course the thought provoking " What do you see " , by Maureen Albright, dealing with the sadness of ageing and Alzheimers disease. We also had a trip to Welsh graveyards, " Buried in Wales ", dramatic shots of racing at Le Mans accompanied by Queen's Don't Stop Me Now, as well as a potted history of toilets, humorously done and provoking much mirth from the audience!
The evening ended with a stunning sequence by Alan Bateman entitled" A Night at the Opera, set in the Paris Opera House, with its ghostly presences, using Andrew Lloyd Webbers' Phantom of the Opera music.
Altogether a relaxing and very enjoyable evening - thanks Alan!
