1977 Jubilee Silent Film Discovery for
A super-8 reel of film capturing Harberton and Harbertonford Silver Jubilee celebrations of 1977 was found within the depths of the Parish Clerk's archive. Now digitised, the 17 minute film has been uploaded to YouTube for open viewing and the Parish Clerk hopes to arrange some public screenings for those who aren't able to access the footage online. Who broke the window during the cricket match? Who was the little boy who wasn't overly impressed at being dressed up? Who was the lady in the Union Jack knickers? Follow this link to watching the footage www.youtube.com/watch?v=HaZiN8Un3zA.
There were no notes found with the reel, so if anyone has any information about who might have shot the film or indeed recognise anyone that appears, please let the Parish Clerk know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or alternatively via YouTube comments. Happy viewing!
