LONG BEFORE THE TALKIES
Some of the artists, cameramen, and others who made or showed or appeared in British films fifty, sixty, seventy years ago-long before the talkies-recall' their work as we see it.
' Off I'd go on my bicycle and get some old skirts or something, and then we'd do a film, and it was all over by lunchtime ... It was an awful business really. But still we enjoyed it. We got to where films are now, when you think of it. We're pioneers aren'we-we people? ' says May Clarke, who is seen in the programme in the part of a nursemaid in Cecil Hep-worth's 1905 classic Rescued by Rover.
