Photos on the set of the 1981 adaptation of Great Expectation taken by cameraman Robin Sunderland. These were taken in Studio A at Pebble Mill.

The following comments were posted on the Pebble Mill Facebook page:

Robin Sunderland: ‘Yes, think it is me on the camera. I always remember walking into the studio on the first day, and thinking…….blimey, they built a whole street!! I think it ran diagonally across the studio from one corner to another, presumably to make it as long as possible. And the horses seemed unfazed, by their studio experience.’

Graham Pettifer: ‘We had the best set builders and painters.’
