Duration: 3 hrs. 5 mins. (approx.)

Details 

Join Paul Cheesley, Peter Aitken and Roger Malone in this fun-packed West Country football ‘time tunnel’! Relax and enjoy over three hours of 1970s football nostalgia, as we recreate a period before Steve Lansdown’s fortunes changed City beyond recognition, when Rovers were still playing in front of the Tote End; where the players’ shorts were very short and shirts had no sponsorship; when you entered the terraces as a juvenile fan for 25 pence and stood sometimes uncomfortably right next to opposition fans!

Driver's Eye View: Exeter to Basingstoke
Product ID: VO1503
Duration: 131 mins.

Details 

The West of England line was the Southern Railway's arterial route to the West Country and as such was at one time very busy with express trains to Salisbury, Exeter and Plymouth. It was also the route of the ACE, the Atlantic Coast Express which ran from Waterloo all the way to Padstow on the North Cornish coast. Run down and rationalised in the 1960s, the West of England line became a shadow of its former self. Today, with privatisation, train services and passenger numbers are on the up and we can see the line from the cab of a class 159 DMU, in its recently re-signalled form along with recent redoubled sections of line to improve capacity and flexibility.

Duration: 3 hrs. 15 mins. (approx.)

Details 

This unmissable double-disc souvenir DVD documents Bristol Rovers' 2014-15 season, which saw a step into the unchartered waters of Conference football, with league games against part-time teams, participation in the FA Trophy and having to qualify to play in the First Round Proper of the FA Cup. Rovers were now the big fish which every other club wanted to have on a plate. After a grim start, with just one point from nine and calls for the manager’s head, Rovers embraced this new challenge and chased Barnet until the final day for the Conference title before having to settle for a place in the playoffs.

About 1st Take Ltd.

1st Take was established in 1993 by Dave Rogers, a history graduate, and Andy Warren, a cameraman and technician. Since that time we have worked closely with historical societies and specialist authors to create a fascinating range of DVDs.

We have also made films celebrating Village Life in days gone by, and a series of four volumes entitled Discovering Dorset. All our early work is now available on DVD and we are constantly making new titles every year, as well as showcasing work from other film-makers of a similar nature.
