John Henshall evening at the BFI
- Published 8th April 2013
Society member John Henshall FRPS is hosting an evening at the British Film Institute’s National Film Theatre on London’s South Bank on 28 May, 2013 from 6.30pm.
Television cameraman John Henshall will be presenting some of his great finds and fascinating stories behind the productions to celebrate 20 years of the BFI’s Missing Believed Wiped initiative. The evening is one of a series of Missing Believed Wiped specials throughout 2013, highlighting the most recent finds and revisiting some old favourites.
One of the great finds of the last few years has been the sensational footage of David Bowie performing ‘The Jean Genie’ from a 1973 edition of Top of the Pops. The footage was recovered from the collection of John Henshall, a television cameraman and director of photography who had made the special lens used for the Bowie performance. John has had a long career in the TV industry and was found to have hundreds of tapes of rare and missing bits of television within his collection and these are being catalogued by Kaleidoscope, the classic television organisation. John will share some of those gems and regale us with the fascinating – often hilarious – stories behind the productions.
John hopes to be joined on the night by some of the talents involved in the items screened. To book please visit the BFI’s website click here.
