Kent 2020 Vision is Kent's largest conference and business to business exhibition with over 300 'Best of Kent' exhibitors and hundreds of key decision makers.

Moving Image Communications will be present on stand C2 along with partner VisitBritain (BTA-British Tourist Authority) to promote together British imagery.
We look forward to seeing you there! Access for visitors is free.

Moving Image has been successfully representing the BTA/VisitBritain film collection (social and touristic Britain from 1930s to the present day) for over 10 years.


Focus on the Wessex Film and Sound Archive

The Wessex Archive comprises of some marvellous amateur and promotional films.

The collection features some enchanting footage of Sir Robert Baden-Powell and his future wife, Olave Soames, as they inspect the Hampshire Boy Scouts at the Grand Rally in Southampton in 1912. Notable films include up-lifting promos of the Queen Mary in 1960 on her way to New York, as well as passengers enjoying their trip to the USA on the RMS Queen Elizabeth in 'Your Cunard Holiday to America,' in 1965. Other films in the collection include the Exercise Salvare 1 as "homeless people" rehearse a mass evacuation, addressing the propaganda of the Cold War. In contrast there is also a delightful account of the daily productivity at Huntley and Palmer's, biscuit factory.

The most used films (also the most viewed films on so far are:
. "Your Cunard holiday to America"
. "Queen Mary"
. "Hampshire Boy Scouts"


TV-am 25th Anniversary

Less than a year to go before the 25th anniversary of TV-am.

February 2008 will mark the 25th anniversary of Britain's first commercial breakfast television station TV-am, the company which produced the hugely popular "Good Morning Britain" programme from 1983 to 1992.

Looking back on GMB is a real trip down memory lane and a chance to wallow in the eighties nostalgia. The archive collection is a real snapshot of Britain in the 1980s, one of the most exciting and diverse decades of the 20th century.
TV-am is remembered for its opening titles, for its presenter David Frost, Michael Parkinson, Nick Owen, Anne Diamond, Lorraine Kelly, Wincey Willis, for Roland Rat and many others.

It is just about time to get programmes ready, so do not hesitate to contact us for any project!
