Film-making for the BBC

Hello folks

We have been approached at very short notice by Libra TV for permission to film at the JMO NDOD on Saturday. They have been commissioned by the BBC to produce a one-hour documentary on Morris dancing and have already filmed at the Morris Ring ARM in March. I’ve attached a pdf file with more information.

Open Morris would like to ensure that nobody is filmed or appears in the film without their consent.

Please could you pass this email and attachment to your members, and ask them to contact Libra Films directly if they wish to withhold consent or discuss matters further. Contact details are in the attachment.

Anyone may also approach the film crew on Saturday if they decide they don’t wish to be filmed.

Best wishes

Norm Warren
