Round and About Volume 1

From the mid 80s to mid 90s I did a lot of video filming of railways. Almost all of the material is in good condition and has transfered to PC at a good quality.

I used a Sony HVC4000P video camera, a Sony SL-F1UB portable video recorder, an external microphone, and some tripoding.

All editing on these DVDs was carried out on a PC from the original material captured to PC.

This DVD is of late 1985 and 1986, it is around Gloucester and some of my trips, it is about 1 1/4 hours long.
