Film about the Royal Jubilee Bells (from Dickon Love)
You might be interested to know that a half hour film was made about the Royal Jubilee Bells. It covers how the project was conceived, the casting of the bells at Whitechapel, the building of a purpose built tower and frame in which the bells were rung, both in a warehouse in Kent and then craned on to a boat leading the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant, the dismantling of the bells after the Pageant, their arrival at St James Garlickhythe in the City of London, their dedication, their hanging in the Hawksmoor tower of the church and the ringing in their new home.
The film was made by Billy Payn who followed the entire story.
I do commend this film, which has been professionally put together and tells the story in a beautiful way, with some stunning pieces of videography. Billy wants people to enjoy the film and has generously made it available to the world without looking for financial reward.
Do let me know what you think and I will co-ordinate the feedback to Billy.
