I have just celebrated a big birthday (one of those milestone years) and it led to me scrambling about in old boxes looking for photos in a nostalgic frenzy. I found plenty of those but I also came across some old home movies. As a kid I was given a super 8mm movie camera by my uncle, Nick Reekie, and I shot a lot of celluloid. I had not seen any of it in decades so I had it converted to DVD – and in amongst the ski trips and Woburn abbey and school journey was my first crime film. Shot when I was 10 years old, with my sister Jools, Doreen who lived along the balcony and my best friend Richard. If anyone knows what has happened to Doreen Donaldson or Richard Radix please let me know, I would love to see them.
Anyway here is the movie in all its glory… Written by, directed by and starring P D Viner.
