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 […]

Oliver White (Editor) - His Unreliable Memoirs - TV Studio Skills

Studio Skills There were wonderful ‘studio skills’.  I remember being at Gosta Green in 1962 and seeing a chap turn a polystyrene column into a satisfactory tree in under 30 seconds, with a soldering iron, and an aerosol.  And how disappointed the public were by the Henry VII costume exhibition.  There was a wide strip […]

Oliver White (Editor) - His Unreliable Memoirs - 'Nuts in May'

Nuts in May by Mike Leigh Did Mike Leigh know this was going to be a knock-out success umpteen years later??  I didn’t!   ‘The famous CHEWING sequence!  We tried several lengths.  I now think it would be even funnier 4-5 seconds longer.  I’ve always been a great believer in the ‘perfect stranger’.  You grab someone […]
