TitleRobin Hood
Datec1949
DescriptionA silent film of an outdoor performance at Alwyn School in Maidenhead produced by Madge Atkinson.
The original note with the film read 'Courthouse School (primary) Maidenhead. Performance of Robin Hood by the whole school. Produced by Madge Atkinson c1949/50.'
However, the performance took place at Alwyn School as a programme of the event is displayed at the beginning of the film. (There is also a programme in the collection - see related material)
Alwyn Infant School and Courthouse Junior School were on the same site so it may be that pupils from both the schools took part in the production.
The original film is in 16mm reel format and this was converted in February 2010 as part of the Pioneer women: early British modern dancers project to DVD. There is also a viewing copy on DVD, a gold archive copy on DVD and a DVCAM Master.
