Operation Chariot

You may have seen Jeremy Clarkson fronting a BBC documentary telling the story of Operation Chariot , the British raid on the French port of St Nazaire during World War 2. The interest generated by this programme reached the US, where a production company has optioned the film rights to the book which is the definitive account of the action. I was commissioned to shoot archive material for the US company, consisting of interviews with the surviving men who took part in the raid. None of these men is younger than 85, but they are still very lucid and had great stories to tell. The material was shot on HD using the Panasonic HDX900 @ 24P. The material may be used in the feature film, on the DVD release or as source research for the feature.
