Party Election Broadcasts

1979 PEB TV version:

Sally Willington remembering the 1979 broadcast in 1983 (10 year look back)…

We were Green in every sense and had no idea how to make our election film. I remembered a correspondence with an lTV writer in Portsmouth and asked him to recommend a source of help and information. He said go and see Jenny and Co in Soho. Jonathon Porritt and I went. After about half an hour, the two Jenny men came to the conclusion that ours was a revolutionary philosophy and, since we had no money they must help us. This they did and that is why we had such a good broadcast that it brought in 5000 members and is remembered to this day.

We are still searching for the video of the 1979 broadcast - please contact us if you have a copy

1983 General Election

The Ecology Party Election broadcast in 1983. The early 80s saw a lot of concern and activity on the anti- nuclear (civil and military) front reflected in the broadcast.
Jonathon Porritt (Election Coordinator) summed up, other speakers not identified - do you know them? Please comment below.

1987 General Election

"Politics for Life" - First election broadcast as the Green Party (was Ecology Party in 1983) "Is this the world we want for our children?" with Jean Lambert (later to become a Green MEP), Niki Kortvelyessy (Parliamentary Candidate), Jo Robins (GP Executive co-Chair), Dr.Richard Lawson (Green District Councillor), David Spaven (Scottish Green Party).

1989 Euro Election

This broadcast featured children talking (scripted) to camera about aspects of the world and things happening to them - known as the "Slime Child" video for obvious reasons. No grown up speakers, and no children were harmed in the making of this video smile

 

Most of the above are transfers from VHS tapes recorded off-air and so quality is less than ideal.

If you have, or know of, any video or film of Green activities or events in the period 1972-1989 please do get in touch.
