Over Our Dead Bodies

Stewkley Film Archive   |   UK

The story of the 1969-71 campaign to stop the building of the Third London Airport. Whole villages were to be destroyed, and thousands of people were to be evicted from their homes. Reason for Submission: This is very much a local production, using amateur and professional film side by side to depict an epic period in the life of several Bucks villages. The mission of the Stewkley Film Archive, a local undertaking, is to keep local history alive. This is its first publication and will perhaps help encourage other local communities to save and make available locally shot historic film.
