In today's nostalgia we transport back to 1962 when a group of young people were busy shooting a film in a village pub near Bury St Edmunds.

The film was being made by members of the Ixworth Modern Secondary School Evening Institute photography class at the village's Pickerel pub.

Entitled 'The Great Pub Robbery', the film was expected to have a 10 minute runtime and would be a slapstick comedy.
