Worcestershire County Record Office and the Media Archive of Central England are currently collaborating on a Heritage Lottery funded project to restore a range of archive film materials relating to Worcestershire, and make them available on a DVD compilation. They asked 7 Inch Cinema to plan a series of community screenings across the county, using all kinds of venues and a programme tailored to each local area. Following on from our Landmarks endeavours this is another opportunity to return a group of films to the places where they were made, and to see what kind of reactions they stir up many years on. Pieces dug up so far include an Empire Marketing Board film about Evesham's plum harvest - called ‘Plums That Please’ - and a 1920 travelogue about the Malvern Hills by film pioneer Cecil Hepworth, as well as a wealth of newsreel and home-movie footage. Screenings take place from September to November 2008, at destinations including Pershore, Evesham, Tenbury Wells, Worcester, Kidderminster and Malvern.
