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.
