Description

Scenes from the Kernaghan family of a Co Down Chistmas during the 1970s with scenes of children playing in the snow and waking up to open their presents. This is the original unedited footage which was used in the making of the Super 8 Story, 'The Kernaghan Family Christmas' and sections of it were also used in the Super 8 Stories Christmas Special.

Notes

Bill Kernaghan was working in sales management in the 1960s when he bought a Konica Standard 8mm camera to record the birth of his first child when living in Otley in England. Bill was a member of the Mercury Movies camera club in Esholt, Yorkshire before taking up residency in Northern Ireland and is still very much involved in his hobby, having kept up with modern video technology as a member of the North Down Movie Makers. Bill has digital transfers of his 8mm films and still occasionally watches them “when prompted by the grandchildren”. Bill’s feelings towards his recorded memories can be summed up by “nostalgic pleasure and the sense of achievement in producing something worth watching with the occasional recording of history, albeit unwittingly!”
