A recent report has unveiled that the giant TV screens, those in Aylesbury as well as at flame-forging ceremony in Stoke Mandeville, would soon be showing footages of the Paralympic movement’s founder Sir Ludwig Guttmann.
The videos covering the story of Guttmann have been developed by Darren Cliff, a filmmaker from Aston Clinton. Since Bucks County Council itself had commissioned him to do the same. It has been told by him that the task has taken him almost six to eight weeks from now.
The footage as per the findings has been prepared from a total of 30 hours of archive images and footage of the founder. While some part covers his arrival at Stoke Mandeville Hospital’s Spinal Injuries Unit in 1948, the other clips include patients being treated by him.
“It charts the history right through to the current day and shows that the Paralympics have come home. My brief was to make us proud of our heritage”, affirmed Mr. Cliff.
Besides, there is footage showing how he exercised patients and played sport like table tennis and netball. It is being said that the footage would be great inspiration for the London 2012 Paralympics as it has the best example of how one benefits from doing something every time and not sitting idle.
