The History Train


We had a Member's movie screening night when both Peter and Glenn were away, the meeting before last. Despite the technical issues with the TV, which turned out to be VLC media player upsetting the software on the TV requiring a reset after each showing. It did give members an opportunity to discuss (briefly) elements of the 'making of' whilst Nigel was resetting the TV.
