FOR VIDEO ARCHIVE
Last year I helped the
National Archive of Rugby League Video Interviews to contact my cousin Dick Huddart, who was in this country on holiday from
his home in Australia.
NARLVI conducted an interview with Dick which I subsequently really enjoyed watching. This motivated me
to purchase several other DVD’s produced by them, all of which I enjoyed.
NARLVI have recently
produced an interview with the late Vince Karalius. Having had the opportunity
to view this, I would recommend that any RL fan should immediately purchase a copy of this fine tribute DVD.
I feel strongly that
NARLVI should be given every assistance and encouragement to continue with their work in recording the players RL memories
and preserving them for the future enjoyment of all who love this game. Nobody
else seems to be producing anything along the same lines, the national TV only ever seem interested in ‘2 minute sound
bites’ and to treat RL as a minority sport.
If this organization
is not encouraged to continue with the fine work they are doing, so many Legends will be lost to those of us who love Rugby
I would encourage all
fans to give themselves a real treat and purchase these DVD’s and to take an interest not only in the present day game
but in the history of the game which has given so many so much pleasure over more than 100 years.
