TV company seeks “film stars” of 1953


A COLOUR movie film made in Stockton Heath on the occasion of the Queen’s Coronation in 1953 is to feature in an ITV documentary later this year.
The film was shot by members of Warrington Cine and Video Society on behalf of Stockton Heath Parish Council and showed the Coronation Day celebrations in the village.
There were a whole week of celebrations, including a fancy dress procession, and the society – then just a cine society – captured it all on 16mm film.
Now an independent television company – Oxford Films – is looking for local people who appeared in the film or who were there on the day so they can be interviewed for the documentary
Society president Rob Evans said: “The film has featured on television before and it is in the North West Film Archives. We have had it digitised now.
“It is just one of many films we have made over the years of momentous occasions and moments in the history of Warrington.
“The television company has managed to trace one person who appeared in the film, but they would like to find more. We are hoping we can find some for them.”
Anyone who appeared in the film – or who remembers the week of celebrations in Stockton Heath June 1953 – is asked to call Mr Evans on 968100.
Founded in 1936, Warrington is one of the oldest cine and video societies in the country.
