Derek Threadgall worked in management at the studio (1960 – 65). He presents an insider view of movie making at Britain’s major independent studio, from its beginnings in 1932 and described by Threadgall as a ‘seat of the pants’ studio, the preferred method of getting things done.

Hollywood came to Shepperton following the Senator McCarthy anti-communist so-called ‘witchhunts’ in America, leading to the blacklisting of artists including Carl Foreman, Joe Losey, Hal Wallis and others who then abandoned Hollywood and brought A-list actors with them to Shepperton.

In 1972, he returned to Shepperton Studios to run the successful sixteen months public campaign to prevent the studio being demolished by City ‘asset strippers’ of the day.

A Preamble to this story charts his efforts, via the National Film Theatre, the British Film Institute, Rank Film Distributors and certain individuals, to complete his journey into the studio at twenty one years old.
