This is a rare chance to read one of the very few books written by a Television Film Cameraman. It is a lighthearted story by Gary Hughes, winner of ten awards in News Documentary and Drama. Depicting life on the road during the last 50 years, seeing many changes in working techniques and the attitude of the public to Press and Television.As a qualified pilot, specialising in aerobatic filming, made a full length documentary about the world famous RED ARROWS giving a graphic account of what it is like to be part of the team.Stories that will amuse and interest the reader include many personal encounters with all walks of life from ROYALTY to the orphans of Romania, in locations throughout the world.It reflects an earlier time in history when VIPs would stand and wait whilst the gentleman of the press took their pictures, before thanking everyone politely, then walking in a dignified fashion into the venue.

(When did they ALL start running?)This book tells amazing stories of how difficult life was in the early years, with equipment not designed for portable filming for Television. Impossible deadlines gave endless problems getting footage back to the studio for transmission. Frequently parcels of film were sent on mid morning steam trains to London from stations in the midlands and the north of the UK, to make the Evening late night National News.In contrast todays CLICK & SEND technology allows instant uplifting from around the world.
