The Bench



Producer: Grace Kitto. Director: Jayne Chard. Format: TV film.

This half hour drama for ITV starred Leslie (Dirty Den) Grantham and Maria Aitken was written by the late acclaimed writer Nick Darke. One of the challenges for director Jayne Chard was the lovely shot near the beginning of the film where the camera swoops down from the cliff top to the beach to find the two main protagonists. It was not possible to get a crane onto the beach so in the end a jimmy jib was used with remarkable results.
