Felixstowe TV is pleased to be able to announce that 'The Lost Sock' - the only full length feature film ever made from start to end in Felixstowe - is to be shown on broadcast TV this weekend.

The world TV premiere of the unique local film, made by Felixstowe TV, is at noon on Saturday (1st September) on Information TV - Sky channel 167. It will be shown again at the same time every Saturday during September, plus another showing every Friday night at midnight on Information TV 2 (channel 168). (See www.information.tv for schedule.)

Between 400 and 500 people attended the film's World Premiere at The Spa Pavilion Theatre last July, 200 copies of the DVD have now been sold, and tens of thousands watched the original episode format on the internet (over half a million showings across the 11 episodes), where it was first shown on Felixstowe TV www.felixstowetv.co.uk . Now it will be broadcast to potentially millions of homes across the UK and Europe!

Chris passed on what the broadcaster said... "When he first saw the film, he was tickled pink by the quirky humour and local appeal. Information TV Chief Executive Fred J Perkins told me that after a slightly slow first ten minutes, it picked up a good pace and was lots of fun." We're all very proud of having been part of a real community effort, with so many local people involved. And as Chris said, getting the film on TV is the icing on the cake!

What the public have said about The Lost Sock (all genuine quotes!):

"Brilliant! Looks like great fun was had by all"
"Better and more believable script than 'Eastenders' - pure classic Felixstowe entertainment!"
"BRILLIANT! I love this online series!"
"Wow! That was an interesting watch!"
"Brilliant - witty, well acted, original and amusing!"
"Fantastic - well done!"
"Excellent - some classic moments!"
"This is genius - the funniest thing I’ve ever seen!"

Hope you all enjoy your 86 minutes of fame!!

Giles Meehan.
