Sorry Vic - I missed 's I Roved Out' out and I have no idea what went out regionally
The pathetic use the Beeb made still sands
Last year I was at a showing of Philip Donnellan's Film, The Irishman
A speaker after the showing described how Philip was forced to send copies of his BBC films abroad as he knew the Beeb would destroy them
The Irishmen - one of the best uses of folk music on a film I have ever seen, never got a public showing because the hierarchy didn't like what the navvies were saying about working in England
Donnellan's film about the Army caused questions to be asked in Parliamment
