The rushes to the original documentary

Paul has found a load of original filming of the documentary, before we even submitted it to the BBC for consideration.

The amount of information we recorded, the emotions and different locations is astonishing – a lot of it we can’t even remember recording.  Most of it hasn’t even been viewed since the documentary was being filmed so it’s like watching a new production.

I can’t believe how far I’ve come since I started on my journey in 2009 – almost 10 years ago now and the amount of information, the truths and untruths, and connections I’ve made along the way is nothing but amazing.

All those emotions I felt back then are resurfacing, but are magnified since some of the discoveries I made then have been proved or disproved – some have been forgotten about.

I just can’t believe what I’ve done in the last 9 years – what is clear though: the past is history – fact.  It cannot be changed, it just needs to be discovered and made sense of.
