Film

As part of the Great War project, our resident camera-man, Tony O'Callaghan, has been producing films about the Old Bristolians who served, as a way to highlight what we know about them, and some of the incredible stories. These range from short films about specific cemeteries, to two half hour overviews about the research we have been conducting. All of these films can be found below.
