Film Cameraman, John Williams was one of the most respected and admired cameramen in the BBC. He joined BBC Birmingham when television was expanding fast, turning to colour, and building a new state of the art television Centre “Pebble Mill” to broadcast to the nation. John gives a talk on his cameraman career at Pebble Mill studios working across most disciplines of programme making including drama, documentaries and current affairs.
From the backstreets of cities to the snowy wastes of Antarctica, meeting paupers and kings in places seen and unseen John’s story, told in his book ‘Shoot First – no ordinary life’, will be revealed.
It promises to be a fascinating evening. The talk begins at 7.30 pm at Dame Elizabeth Hall, Firbank Close off Oak Tree Lane, in Bournville.
Signed copies of Johns memoirs ’Shoot First - No Ordinary Life’ (A4 210 pages.) is sold at cost price and will be available on the night for £14 or can be posted for extra £4 to including packaging. Or copies can be ordered
