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 - 'Match of the Day'

Match of the Day by Neville Smith, directed by Stephen Frears What happened re ‘Match of the Day’?  Stephen never appeared on the first day he was expected – he’d gone to Switzerland, and not told anyone.  I phoned him at Gstaad, and he said, ‘Start at the beginning!’  What a waste of time.  Of […]

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 […]

Oliver White (Editor) - His Unreliable Memoirs - 'Red Shift'

Red Shift by Alan Garner I was a little apprehensive of working with John McKenzie.  Like any good editor I’d looked at a previous film.  It was about the Orange Order in Glasgow, and was very good, tough stuff.  I vividly remember looked at the ‘synched’ rushes.  Take 1, so, so; Take 2, better; Take […]
