The first half of last night's episode of the BBC1 series Home Movie Roadshow (http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00tj79t/Home_Movie_Roadshow_Episode_3/) included film taken by a National Service OD on board HMS Eagle in 1953. He seems to have been given pretty much the run of the ship for his filming. The clips used include flight deck ops with Sea Hornets, Attackers and a Firefly, and an undercarriage collapse of an AEW Skyraider; film of the 1953 Fleet Review; and oggin coming over the bow onto the flight deck to cheer up any modern Crabs who may be watching. I think this may be Eagle's first commission. An 'uncut' version may show up later on BBC i-Player I think so watch out for that. Pity about the commentary - far too much of it and often creepily (and condescendingly) left-wing in accordance with BBC Marxist policy, but hang in there and watch the FAA entering the jet age.
