The AGM was followed by our Guest Speaker, Bob Redman – from Elstree Screen Heritage
Bob described 100 years of local film-making in Elstree & Borehamwood. He also refered to Aldenham’s own connection as a key location for many films and TV productions. Of course, being a resident of Hertsmere means that you own a share of Elstree Studios as well.
This wasn’t just an exercise in nostalgia, since Elstree Studios are busier than they have been for many years, largely as a result of increased BBC activity and Bob brought the story up-to-date and speculated a bit about the future.
Bob touched on how Elstree Screen Heritage was formed and the work it has done to protect and promote the home of British film and television.
Elstree Screen Heritage has learned a lot over the past nine years: how to fight campaigns, raise profiles and form effective working relationships with other groups, government and commercial.
