The guys behind the highly successful and very well received documentary From ATVLand in Colour begin filming a new documentary today which will be released on DVD by MACE in October this year.
At present the release date is scheduled for Monday 23rd October, so put the date in your diaries.
The DVD will be in 4 parts and will include an array of exclusive interviews from those who worked in front and behind the camera for Associated Television on the Midlands news/magazine programme ATV Today which began in 1964 and ended in 1981, when it was replaced by Central News.
As the screen archive for the Midlands it’s unsurprising that we will be including a lot of archive footage from the ITV Central Collection that is preserved at MACE.
I’ll be blogging frequently with development news on the documentary and pictures of those contributing as well as a peek at the archive we will be using. Exciting times!
