I wonder what might have been if 1939 hadn't arrived so quickly........
But Stephen Pickards' fabulous Thread shows what did happen next
An important date in the history of British film-making - it was on this date in 1935 that construction began to create Pinewood Studios at Heatherden Hall.
Did you see The Apprentice a couple of weeks ago. When Sugar told them they were off to film at Pinewood, one of the girls said, 'What's Pinewood?' and another one answered, 'I think it's a furniture store'. Dear oh dear.
That's the calibre of those who aspire to management jobs in Britain today I suppose.... it certainly explains a lot.
