Dear all,


You might be interested to know that a half hour film was made about the
Royal Jubilee Bells.  It covers how the project was conceived, the casting
of the bells at Whitechapel, the building of a purpose built tower and frame
in which the bells were rung, both in a warehouse in Kent and then craned on
to a boat leading the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant, the dismantling of the
bells after the Pageant, their arrival at St James Garlickhythe in the City
of London, their dedication, their hanging in the Hawksmoor tower of the
church and the ringing in their new home.


The film was made by Billy Payn who followed the entire story.


I do commend this film, which has been professionally put together and tells
the story in a beautiful way, with some stunning pieces of videography.
Billy wants people to enjoy the film and has generously made it available to
the world without looking for financial reward.


The film may be viewed on Youtube at or on
Billy's channel 


Do let me know what you think and I will co-ordinate the feedback to Billy.


Best wishes,

Dickon Love
