At one time, Anglia TV ran a series titled ‘Portrait of a Village’, and Benington was one of the featured villages, and although the exact date is not known, it was probably in the late 1970s.
Julie Goddard has a copy of the programme copied onto DVD, and thanks to her we can make copies available to anyone who would like one.
Included on the same DVD is amateur video footage of two exhibitions in the Village Hall of old photographs and other paraphernalia, the later one of which was titled ‘Benington Life, Then and Now’ held in March 1995. There is also footage of the 120th anniversary celebration of the school in June 1993.
It should be pointed out that the sound quality of the DVD is not very good, but it does feature various village residents, some of them talking about the photographs and their memories.
Also available is another DVD which features Julie’s father, Vic Robinson, talking about his collection of old village photos. This gives an insight to some of the history of the village, including some of the old names. And, on a CD, is an interview with Vic by Three Counties Radio.
