A really good cinema programme
7 February 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Although 'Clapperboard' was broadcast as part of children's TV, at about 5pm, it was actually a very worthwhile cinema programme. The latest releases got a good airing, of course, but there were also programmes showing how films were made, such as the work of special effects and stunt units, the writing of film music, even the importance of continuity. There were also 'themed' programmes looking at films through the years devoted to specific subjects (I remember one about the Titanic when 'SOS Titanic' and 'Raise the Titanic' were released in 1980), or directors. Of course, I was a child when I watched the programme, but I remember there was good solid information here, and it gave me an interest in films and film-making I still have 40 years later.
