Shampagne chats to Colin Gates about the paintings on the wall in the Charlwood Church, Charlwood.
Part of the church was built in around 1080, only fourteen years after the Battle of Hastings,
and before most of the English cathedrals. Still surviving from Norman times are the north wall
with its small Norman window, the Norman arch and the tower.
The building must have been done by Saxon workers to the design of a Norman architect
but why such a comparatively large church was built in what was then a
boggy and impassable part of the Weald remains a mystery.

plus give the chance of new talent we discovered along our journey to ‘show their stuff!’
we found some great talent and looking forward to work with in the next journey of our movies.

Sally got her Father, John Clack to do the vocals of a BBC reporter.
The song got refused by a music platform because they thought we stole a voice over from the BBC.
Sally was insisting it was her “dad’s voice”, but the music platform still did not allow the song to go onto there platform!
