GUERNSEY LILY FESTIVAL 2000
- Programme B (Prizewinners)

1. THE OLYMPIC MUSEUM
Richard Lewendon (Glos)
This is a fascinating documentary about the modern Olympic movement since 1896 and its creator, Pierre de Coubertin, and the museum which has been built in Lausanne to house its archives. There is also footage of as much material as has been traced, both on film and on video, all of which is available to students, researchers, etc. The excellent commentary is by Alan Simpson.
