Virtual Victoriana! is Virtually Complete – But not quite

2 weeks ago

We are pleased to advise that Victoriana! is “in the can” – in other words filming is complete.  But we regret to advise that, due to technical issues, the final recording will not be ready for broadcast this weekend.   For that, we as Producer and Director are very sorry, not least because we know of many Paulines who have arranged dinner parties around the screening and we know that both the undergraduate College and Graduate House have scheduled their own in house screenings before live audiences. We are sorry also for the unavoidable late notice. But we didn’t want to compromise the integrity of something which is going to be really special by cutting corners at the last minute.  Hopefully, the planned social functions can go ahead this weekend notwithstanding, and we will advise the new dates just as soon as the project is absolutely complete.
