This documentary goes about 28 minutes, and features noted Kelly historian, Ian Jones, and is narrated by Charles ‘Bud’ Tingwell.
The Story of Ned Kelly is a documentary we originally made for a Kelly exhibition in South Bank Melbourne. A strong point is the narration by Charles ( Bud ) Tingwell and appearance by leading Kelly historian Ian Jones. I was totally surprised when Bud agreed to do the read for just 1k. All we had left in the budget. Apparently he had just completed a stage show in Perth and had contacted his agent to see if anything was pending the day i rang. He did the whole read in one take. A real fair dincom professional and a true gentleman. Originally created under the banner of my first production company Picturepond Media, the film continues to enjoy an enthusiastic audience due to its strait forward and authentic portrail of the events that shaped this fascinating story. It really is the journey of a life time..Sorry this is not the whole film.
