Raffle Donations Add Christmas Cheer

15 December 2008

With the economic turn down and research jobs thin on the ground, it was good to have spirits lifted at the annual FOCAL International Christmas gathering held at London's historic Cittie Of Yorke pub. Real ale and good pub food, together with a horde of presents donated by FOCAL footage library members ensured a fun evening.

Grateful thanks go to: Fremantle Archive Sales, INA, ITFC, Getty Images, Bridgeman Art Library, National Geographic Digital Motion, BBC Motion Gallery, RPPTV, Skyworks, re:fine (formerly Vode).
