Films Officer Adrian Barak has just informed us that the first of this year’s meetings, scheduled for this coming Saturday (16th March) has had to be cancelled, due to the venue, the Coach & Horses in Barnes having re-booked the room for rugby fans!
Adrian is prepared to run the event the following evening (Sunday 17th) if demand is sufficient, otherwise it will re-scheduled to Saturday 6th April. In either event the projector will start rolling at 8pm, but he suggests you make it an hour earlier if you wish to sample the pub’s excellent menu.
Adrian promises an interesting programme. The main feature will be the 3-part 1989 BBC drama/documentary ‘The Darkness Beckons’ about the history of cave diving. This includes interviews with Graham Balcombe and a reconstruction of his standard dress dive in Wookey Hole in the 1930s, through to the post-war period and formation of the Cave Diving Group.
The ‘cartoon’ feature is a 12 minute film titled ‘Kamikaze’ – how to set about diving without any instruction! He also hopes to put together a short tribute to the late Jim Hutchison.
Please let him know if you will be coming and your date preference.
