Any alumni who began their law studies in the late 1990s?
We’re looking for former law students to talk about their time at university, as background research for a film. We’re interested to know about what you studied, which options you took and what others were available, and a little about your university life. It’s a drama so we’re looking for contributions to help the actor understand his role. Please contact Nick Kay firstname.lastname@example.org"

I have been filming and producing a 35 minute DVD Film 'Quest for Freedom' together with a retired newsreel film editor friend Derek that will have its Premiere showing at Tiverton Town Hall on Thurs 16th April. This is a properly made documentary film.
I hold the Film Copyright and funded the Film studio fee and production cost of 500 copies to raise money for the Army & RAF Benevolent funds. DVDs will be sold at £7.99 each.
To buy the DVD send a minimum donation of £8 by UK Cheque made out to David Chapman-Andrews together with £2 for post and packaging. Send to D Chapman-Andrews, 26 Cranford Avenue, Exmouth EX8 2PZ.
All donations will be logged and dated. Each contributer can specify the Captain Jerry Roberts fund (please name according to his Alumni Lecture if he wishes) or mine the Army & RAF Benevolent Funds (run by the Armed Forces for the Armed Forces).
I will recoup only the DVD printing and packaging costs. All the remainder will go to the above Funds.
