There are just four weeks until the world premiere of our documentary! From Borehamwood to Hollywood: The Rise and Fall and Rise of Elstree is in the last stages of editing, though we still have a couple more interviews to film – including a special interview tomorrow with British Muppeteer Louise Gold!
