Absolutely riveted by 'Do Not Bend' - brilliant! - had heard it was coming out but did not know it was available on YouTube - thank you so much.

I've found where I had got that date of 1965; David Allan Mellor, "A Contextual Chronology", p.150. In David Allan Mellor, ed., ''No Such Thing as Society: Photography in Britain 1967-87: From the British Council and the Arts Council Collection''

Thank you Grant, I will watch Do Not Bend with great interest, and thank you for the date for Bill's commencement as editor at CC..will amend accordingly. James
