Oliver White (Editor) – His Unreliable Memoirs – ‘Gangsters 2’

Gangsters Series 2

I did the film inserts into this studio-based production, and, as the material seemed to dictate, I cut it fairly sharply….. Alastair Reid seemed happy with what I showed him, but he was often very tired after a day’s filming, and I recall he was probably asleep when I said, ‘Is that ok?’!  We had to get it off to the lab.  Come transmission, I was appalled!   Alastair had done the studio bits in long, elaborate Takes lasting MINUTES!  So when you came to a film bit, you were hit over the head by a plethora of five second shots.  By the time your brain had adjusted, you were back to the studio.  But he was a jolly nice chap.
