It was a pleasure to be chosen to be in a brief film in connection with the Theatre Royal in Brighton.

Film-makers Paul Dutnall and Simon Wilkinson used footage taken in 1977 of me meeting Richard Todd for the signing of the facsimile flying log book of the late wing commander Guy Gibson VC, whom Richard portrayed in the movie The Dambusters.

I saw my short contribution screened at the Duke of Yorks Cinema on Sunday, November 30, as part of the programme in respect of the Brighton and Hove City Film Festival, and would like to thank the film-makers for their professionalism.
