ARNOLD PHOTO GALLERY.

Special note: Please bear with us on this great classic. It was shot under very difficult conditions. The lighting at the prejudging was average, and given the technology of the day the quality is the best we can achieve using modern technology to enhance the colour and total picture image. Shot on film, digitally transferred to video, then to DVD and music added.

In celebration of the 60th year of the NABBA universe in 2008, this whole DVD production process was re-done on August 27th, 2008 to REMASTER & EXTEND this DVD from 60 to 79 minutes.
Most photos were taken by the late great George Greenwood, who authorised their use by Wayne Gallasch. Also thanks to Malcolm Whyatt.
