"There was a much earlier (probably late 1970s) programme shown on, I think, BBC television. It showed Fred Gandolfi in his workshop, talking about the cameras and how they were made. I believe that I still have a copy of this that I made on VHS…"

"In mid-2012 Michael Dixon told me that the process of generating a DVD had begun, so I hope there may have been some progress. I haven't heard anything, so if anyone has any more news I'd love to hear it!"

Gandolfi film

Having looked up Gandolfi cameras on the internet, it seems that a film was produced to show the history of the company. It was called Gandolfi- A Family Business. It doesn't say on the website whether the film was released. It was made in 2003 by Ken Griffiths. Does anyone know whether it was made into a DVD because I'd love to see it.

"Messers Agnew and sons of Manchester commissioned Fenton, they were publishers. 312 prints were displayed in an exhibition on his return."

"Roger Taylor's essays in All The Mighty World. The Photographs of Roger Fenton 1852-1860 (Yale, 2004) are probably your best source. "
