I do find this very sad, these unknown folk, doing their thing to us an unknown watcher, how tragic. These films belong with their families, not us. I remember Tony of Bucks Films, telling me how folk came in with films to be transferred to video, and leaving the
original film behind as unwanted, he was as shocked as I was when he told me, a film stock that will still have colour a hundred years from now, is universal, it can be shown anywhere in this world, just chucked like so much rubbish, people are spoiled and unappreciative
thinking that todays techno is forever, how short sighted, how very sad. Just as an after thought, I had a job where there had been a house fire, I was sent in to do remedial works, photos were laying about, I gathered them up, even the damaged ones, luckily I knew the
family and passed them on, its their history, not ours. I suppose ebay might be a saviour of sorts in that these films are kept from destruction.
