As mentioned below, the Annual Dinner will take place on 20th March 2004 at Elsham Golf Club. But at 6.30 pm before the Dinner, guests will be able to view two long-lost films made at BGS in the 1960s., 'The House That John Built' and 'The Racket', which will be available for purchase on the night as a DVD or VHS video for approximately £10.

News From Old Briggensians - November 2003

The Guest Speaker at the 2004 Annual Dinner on Saturday, 20th March 2004 will be Nev Miller, who is flying in especially for the night from Texas where he is Chief Engineer on a satellite based Broadband system for 14 Far East countries (home to two thirds of the world's population). Nev is hoping to catch up with many of his old friends on the night. Read more about him on this special biog page.

A couple of years ago we reported how Andrew Graeme (BGS 1963-66) was opening a recording studio in his native Scotland. Now we hear that Andrew's The Byre Recording Studio at Culburnie in the Highlands has brought off the considerable coup of buying a very special Bösendorfer piano formerly owned by André Previn. Andrew describes the piano, built only to special order, as one of the most important in Britain today, and says "it is unusual in that it has 92 keys, four more than the usual 88 and has a larger sound board that gives a much richer sound. The mechanics were especially commissioned from Renner of Germany to be ideal for recording." Though the studio has only been open for 18 months, it is already highly successful. Next year two international film companies and one London music agency have booked the studio for a month each. There's photos, much, much more information and some hilarious stories on Andrew's website.
