A lot of preparation goes into a home film show, as seen in this delightful short film from Bollington in Cheshire. Choosing the film, lacing up the projector, cueing up the reel-to-reel tape player, and, of course, getting the refreshments ready - beer or Babycham, according to taste. Now we're ready to sit and watch. But watch what? We don't know yet, but we can be sure that a treat is in store.
