BSoUP is presenting films, videos, audio-visuals, lectures and workshops at the Annual Exhibition of Underwater Sport at Crystal Palace, to be held over the weekend of 16/17 March. In addition we shall be putting on a display of member's work in the Wonderful World of Diving.

Volunteers are required throughout the weekend to man the exhibition stand, promoting BSoUP, and in the film theatre.

Please contact Brian Pitkin as soon as possible if you would like to help. The only perk, apart from knowing that you are helping your Society, is a complimentary ticket to the exhibition.


The British Society of underwater Photographers have put together a remarkable collection of films, audio-visuals, videos and workshops for this year's Festival of Underwater Sport to show the Visiting public something of our Wonderful World of Diving.

As well as showing the renowned fictional drama OCEANS DAUGHTER, set in the Red Sea, we will screen FASHION UNDERWATER; and Mike will present clips of some of his creative advertising assignments and reveal the secrets behind his success. Also for the underwater cine and video enthusiasts Mike Valentine will be showing UNDERWATER, a video about his involvement in film making for the big screen, especially made for the Museum of the Moving Image, and showing clips of some of his recent productions.
