Then I was filmed loading coal into the hold
Later on the film crew did some filming from the boat as we left Union Wharf.
We were asked if we would be happy to do further filming if it was required, again we agreed. We were contacted and an arrangement was made to do more filming on Friday November 26th, which we did at Foxton.
As can be seen in these photos the canal was freezing as we were filmed.
It took nearly all day, and we were left travelling to Union Wharf in the dark and freezing canal, but fortunately we made it before the canal froze solid.
Not all the footage was used, in fact only about 2 minutes was used out of 1½ days filming.
Click any of the above photos or this link to view the whole program, of which, the opening sequence was filmed from Hadar, and the last 2 minutes, but the whole program is very good. It is about the early volunteers who battled with British Waterways to rescue canals.
