MK as Michael Faraday in 1991 BBC coproduction

Postby Wolesley » Thu Apr 13, 2017 5:23 pm

Shared on FB by a member of FW Appreciation Society! This 33-minute film seems to have been well hidden since it's broadcast 25 years ago. MK explains science - and is extremely handsome while explaining!

Even Fiona didn't have this in her comprehensive filmography on the NFMK site!

Maybe we need a new subforum called 'News of Old Projects.' :rofl:

Two finds in a few days, wonderful! :samkiss: and :foyle1: hat's off to the treasure hunters who dug up these two gems.
But, what does the brain matter....compared to the heart?

hidden treasures.

I am happy they are FWAS members and chose to share their extraordinary finds!

FWAS is fairly active and everyone is encouraged to share and comment. There is such a wide variety. "Foyle's War" info of course, but that is so difficult to come by since there are no new series. :foyle3:

It is interesting to see what can be related to "Foyle's War". Posts about WW II, modern commemorations including Spitfires, B-17s, and other flyovers and restorations, what the various actors have done and are doing now, music, clothing, buildings, Victory gardens, recipes, and the list goes on. :thumbsup:

I enjoy the recommendations for books, movies, and TV series from like-minded folks. And most fortunately, many are MK fans! How great is that?!?! :obsessed:

This was an awesome find. I can't believe it is not listed anywhere. He looks gorgeous and is so cute with the children. The closeups!! :obsessed:

Another piece of Mr K's filmography jigsaw falls into place. Many thanks to the poster. :smile:

It's not on IMDb, Amiga, but it's always been listed on Mr K's page on the BFI website.

Thanks for mentioning the BFI page, Lynne! I've added a link in the 'Resources' section.

WOO-HOO! :ten: :bouncy: :bananadance:

Maybe we can call the "News of Old Projects" page the "It's New To Us" Page! :lol:
Just looked over the chapter on "Horse Racing and Illegal Rambling."

I haven't got the requisite capacity for deceit.

It's a jammed packed 33 minutes! Almost all MK-close-ups, hands, and lots of tinkering in the laboratory. I love how devoted and protective his wife is of him and his work.

Thanks to you and Vagabondtrousers on Tumblr for all the fabulous gifs. He is just gorgeous in this. 33 minutes of pure Kitchen. His scenes with the children are adorable.

Watching a biographical series on National Geographic about Einstein and Faraday was mentioned. Geoffrey Rush plays Einstein. Claire Rushbrook from Home Fires plays his Mother. Very interesting so far. Time frame.....the rise of Hitler.
