STRICTLY BINGO

1 x 50’ BBC2

This film follows 3 bingo callers as they compete for the coveted prize of National Bingo Caller of the Year. A film about passion and aspiration in the working class heartlands of Britain. We followed the ups and downs of their progress, documenting their hopes, fears and tears – when they finally lose.. Originated the idea, negotiated the access and got the idea commissioned (after much persuasion)!
The documentary got excellent press reviews and was pick of the week in many national newspapers.

SUNDAY TIMES “This does for bingo what Baz Luhrmann’s film did for ballroom dancing. Wonderful!”
