Back view looks a bit like the late Eric Burns. He, John Wallers, Dawson
Wilkinson, Warren Stirling, and Peter Mellor etc were a core group at the
time. Eric later owned a commercial TV movie news business.

That's a Bolex H16, Brian. Nice Swiss made camera. There was an 8mm version
(H8) but I'm pretty sure that's the 16mm model. It would have attracted some
attention at the time.

CRS stalwart Ian Fisher also had one of those and was still using it until
quite recently.
