Fronted by self-confessed Granada addict Peter Kay, ITV's Goodbye Granadaland was a celebration of the people and programmes that made Manchester's Granada Studios a national treasure. The studios dominated the Manchester skyline for 57 years. It was the first television complex to be built in the UK and home to some of the greatest programmes in television history from Coronation Street to Cracker and Jewel In The Crown. This documentary was carefully crafted to bring some of the studios' most momentous and iconic stories to life through a wide range of archive, included rare footage uncovered during production.
This documentary was a six-month labour of love for archive producer Elspeth Hanna who headed into the Granada archives to uncover footage which had not been seen on TV for decades " if ever. The archive included Inside Granada staff training programmes shot by the station in the early 60s and which, on closer inspection, consisted of footage of the TV studios which had never been broadcast " including early behind the scenes shots of Coronation Street being made. Elspeth also collated home movie footage from Granada staff from different generations to help build up an intimate portrayal of a North West institution.
Biographical documentary feature showcasing the life and works of stand-up comedian/director David Steinberg, from his beginnings on the Second City stage to his record number of appearances on the Johnny Carson show to his transition to a successful sitcom director.
The feature utilizes archival footage dating back to the early years of Second City, all the way up to recent HBO programming. The footage is instrumental in showcasing David's development as a comedian and director, as he hones his craft from sketches and characters to his signature "sermons" and controversial political opinions.
In the 16 months following the ascension of Queen Elizabeth II in February 1952, Britain moved from the grey of post-war austerity to a Technicolor world, filled with hope and possibilities; a transformation most potently symbolised by the Coronation of a beautiful young Queen. Using compelling interviews and rare colour-only footage from the period 'The Coronation Year in Colour' immerses the audience in the joys, realities and quirks of everyday life in 1950's Britain.
The 'new Elizabethan age' heralded a bright new beginning for Britain and we felt colour archive truly reflected this optimism. The narrative is illustrated by exceptional, rare archive used in a creative and impressionistic way to convey a sense of time and place. Finding the footage required a global search of private collections, commercial libraries, educational institutions and local cine clubs. Footage of Britain at work and play, the post-war boom and even the Queen's journey paints an amazingly vibrant picture of what it was like to live in Britain during an incredible 16 months.
