Thank you Gavin Dickson who sent me his memories of filming of 'Just
Another Saturday' in Bonnington.
"I remember seeing the filming of 'Just Another
Saturday' when I was walking home from Bonnington School to my family's house
which was, at that time, in Newhaven Road.
The location I saw being shot was the old tenements
in Graham Street, which was pretty much a slum in the seventies.
At that time I was only of
primary age so I never really appreciated what was happening. Its a shame
the 'powers at be' decided that the time was right to demolish the tenements
around that area as they gave me so many memories of my childhood, Graham
Street, West Bowling Green Street, Bangor Road, Burlington Street.
I do not think they would get
away with such destruction nowadays. I would like to see some
picture of that area pre-demolishing, which took place in the late-70s.
