A Diary For TimothyFilmmaker Humphrey Jennings was born in Walberswick and is considered a cinematic poet.  We have on tape (yes ... tape) Fires Were Started about the Auxiliary Fire Service during WWII.  Last week channel 81 Talking Pictures showed Jennings' A Diary For Timothy with Michael Redgrave narrating.  No doubt it'll be around again on Talkin' Pix or watch it on YouTube.
