My father, Harold Phillips, bought an 8mm Kodak film camera in 1959 and took about 40 hours of footage in the 1960s and 70s. In 2010, I sent that fading film away to be digitized, so now it is preserved and multiple copies exist. I’ve edited some of the footage and made it available on my YouTube channel.
