Description

The compilation of three films by the Haywards Heath Cine & Video Club, show highlights of two BBQ events and a screening of society films to members of the public.

The first film: 'The First Barbecue 1966' is recorded at the home of Mr & Mrs Tester, Society members. The film features a voice over narrative and several members of the society splashing and swimming in a pool and having a BBQ at a residential home.

The second film: 'The Public Show of 1968' is filed during a screening of society films created during meetings. Members of the public are seen entering a village hall style venue and sitting down to watch a projection of films made by the HHCVC society. (The film is damaged, out of focus and grainy making it difficult to make out the action.)

The final film: 'The Barbecue of 1969' is recorded at the home of Mr & Mrs Tester, society members and is similar in content to the first film. It features a voice over narrative explaining the gathering with the addition comedy style foley sound effects, along with members of the society splashing and swimming in a pool and having a BBQ at a residential home. (This film has non-sync audio and displaced sound effects that do not match the narrative).
