I took the film in 1978 on a Super 8 camera (in the days before camcorders!)  My father had raised the money for a minibus for the Wythenshawe branch ofthe Catholic Handicapped Children's Fellowship.  The occasion was a mass and blessing, celebrated by the Mon himself. The clip you see is of Spike showing the minibus to one of the girls. [BB]

The Super 8 film was transcribed to VHS Video. This clip was then copied into electronic format (avi) using a TV card and video capture software. It was then reduced to a smallish GIF file suitable for presentation on the site.
