Where the public sets the agenda
'Weddings are the number one thing, holiday snaps next, then pets ... or children.' So says a technician from a photographic processing factory that deals with over a million and a half films a year.
Are people really so predictable? Is the camera only useful for 'special' and 'happy' events or could it play a larger part in their lives? In this film four photography students from Trent
Polytechnic in Nottingham explore the reasons for taking photographs, tracing them back to family album conventions established in Victorian times. They reckon people could get far more out of photography, not by using fancy equipment but by recognising it as a powerful means of communication - available to everyone.

In December 1948 a group of largely unknown British jazz musicians formed themselves into a co-operative, hired a room in Great Windmill
Street in Soho and began to play the new bebop music to the public. The 'Club Eleven' was one of the most important milestones in the development of modern jazz in post-war Britain.
Reuniting at Ronnie Scott's Club in Soho for the occasion: Ronnie Scott (tenor sax) Johnny Rogers (alto sax) Hank Shaw (trumpet) Norman Stenfalt (piano) Lennie Bush (bass) Tony Crombie (drums) and John Dankworth (alto sax) Leon Calvert (trumpet) Joe Muddel (bass) Laurie Morgan (drums) and 'Flash' Winston (compere)

Golf club porter:
Club Eleven Reunion was in many ways a tribute to the trumpeter and pianist Denis Rose who died last year. Besides helping the other musicians with the finer points of bebop music, he also photographed many of them with his 8mm film camera. This film, which he shot in the early 50s, is more than a portrait gallery of British jazz musicians, it is a valuable record of life on Archer Street in Soho - the place where musicians met to find work in the post-war years, mingling with Windmill girls, boxers from Jack Solomon's gymnasium, tramps, buskers and gangsters.
Denis Rose's film is commented on by Archer Street regulars: Ronnie Scott, Benny Green, Bill Maynard, 'Flash' Winston, 'Ace' Rockman, Hank Shaw, Johnny Rogers, Billy Kaye, Lennie Bush, Laurie Morgan and Tony Crombie. Commentary by Russell Davies
