Description

This edited extract from an oral history interview with Janet and John Lurcook, recorded in 2009 covers the couple's involvement in the Sevenoaks Cine Society, a Kent-based amateur film-making group, during the 1950s. This very short extract combines interview footage with relevant archive material from the Sevenoaks Cine Society collection.

Here John and Janet comment on how important they feel it is to keep the films for the future as 'a bit of social history'. The archive film shows some of the 'behind the scenes' film production by the group.
