    Battle of Britain film Cine Film

    Hello,

    I am converting some old Cine film for a friend of mine and besides the usual holiday sequences, is a few minutes of what appears to be filmed during the making of the BoB film. None of this has been seen outside the owner's family before. I am allowed to take screenshots but not to make copies of the films themselves. Hope that someone finds these photos of interest.

    Fantastic images, especially the behind the scenes shots. Is there no way the owner can be convinced to share the footage?

      Afraid not, as clips contain family parts too. Might see if can splice the aviation parts together and ask again, but at this present time, it's just the pictures as seen here. Am lucky that am able to do that. Some cracking films. Thought was going to be just buckets and spades and then was presented with Buchons and Spitfires. Makes interesting viewing.

        Let's hope so. Is the PR Spit PS915?

          I don't see a PR Spitfire. I see a Spitfire in camouflage that looks blue in the photo. Apparently in Spain... so MH415?

              I think most of the 'bluing' is due to the age of the film, but then perhaps not!

                ..but it can all be fixed.

                  MH415 / G-AVDJ concurred.

                      Thanks for sharing. I think it's great when new images and footage turn up from a movie as seminal as "Battle Of Britain".

                          Great stuff Martin. Love the Buchon in their genuine blue SpAF colours. So sad to see the Proctuka as several Proctors were sacrificed for nothing since they eventually used footage of Ju87 models.

                              Always very exciting to see new images from behind the scenes. These private collection images always have something special and different from the normal ones that get published. Many thanks for letting us see them.

                                A few more. Glad that they are of interest.

                                  Yet more fascinating images, thanks for taking the time to share these with us. My first clear view of the dummy set up, and a fascinating rear view of the psychedelic monster.

                                    Last ones for today. Still lots more film to go through, so if find anything else will try and post here.

                                        Tried a little clean-up here. This may well be my 'local', Bovingdon, as certainly the unit was there for some time in 1968.

                                        The cameraman has been on at least three BoB film locations , maybe on more than one occasion, so is more than a casual gawper.

                                        I wonder if he had some more formal connection with the filming. Great to see it, anyway.
