Updates from Maritime Film UK’s Rob White, TV producer, reporter and camera operator with 30 years’ experience at the BBC, Channel 4 and ITN

…with camera, to get shots of MTB’s 71 and 331 en route to their Gosport home at Priddy’s Hard. But it’s very difficult to capture all you need of an A to B journey unless you’ve got about five crews (as if.) You need first to shoot the convoy’s departure (picture). BUT THEN, you’re behind them… and you need to get ahead to set up in time to get a passing shot. Difficult to achieve, as most of the journey had to be conducted on those tidgy little A-roads. So… you somehow get your passing shot… but THEN you’ve got to overtake again. It’s a matter of quiet pride that my colleague David Botwinik and I managed to get what we needed. But we used all that we shot, most unusual in any edit. That’s how tight it was.
