Podcast: The Movietone Years – episode thirty eight

“Movietone engineer Victor Mardon”

This week’s podcast concerns Victor Mardon, Movietone’s engineer, working from a workshop in Conway Street in the West End of London.  He often gave me a shopping list of items needed to repair cameras, which I took to the staff of Beardmore’s in Percy Street. Victor Mardon was one of the unsung heroes of Movietone, working miracles from his workshop.
