Videos of Gordon Park
This Video was taken in 1986 at Gordon Park's 50th Annaversary celebrations. I believe Norman Scott paid a proffessional to travel all the way out to GP, and using the latest technology, a very rough Video recording was made of the event - so it is with thanks to Norman Scott that we can view this today ( I'm just hopeing he wasnt keeping it to supplement his Old-Age pension!). It's a "1st attempt" & appears very dark, so will be replaced with a lighter version next month. It is stored on Youtube.com which only allows 10minute videos - so I have spliced it into 2 - just click on the big arrow in the middle of each picture to run the video (clicking anywhere else will jump you into youtube.com)
Above are the text of names of people and places that appear in the video. If you recognise anyone and can add to the list - please let me know - thanks (oneday I'll find out how to put them in as scrolling sub-titles). A lot of the original voices in the above sound-track were recorded by Wayne Jolly, whom I believe sadly passed away in Nov 2001.
Its an ipod video - viewed best on a screen 2 inches by 2 inches (and is a lot clearer and brighter); If you appear in this and want a copy of the full-screen dvd, just yell.

This is in 6 Parts, finding and visiting the actual sites BP fought at. (Each 10minute video takes about 20mb - do let me know if you think I should put a bigger/clearer or smaller/faster video on).
