Venturer ‘61



In the Issue of Newsletter for March 1961 still being edited by Ken Pierce - was an item called Whitsun. This invited members to a camp for a "working holiday". The Boys Scouts Association was holding a Venturer camp for senior scouts and Rovers at Torbay during May; and they wanted BCS to film it.


Four members spent a week under canvas and shot some 2000 feet on Judo, canoeing, pony-trekking, football, rock-climbing and sub-aqua in and around Torbay. They used four cameras, a Ferrograph, Windsor and Ficord tape-recorders. The completed film was first shown to the society in January of the following year. it won a four star award in the Ten Best.







This proved to be a production of which Fred Lorenz could feel justly proud. In the same month that Venturer was premiered, another Lorenz production saw the light of day.


On January 3rd 1962 Joanne Claire Lorenz arrived, weighing in at 6 lbs 11 ozs. A joint VALERIE and FRED production.
