Hi all

Back in the 60s, my mother in law was in an advert for Chesswood mushrooms. She is now in her 80s, and would love to see the advert again.

Chesswood have been taken over by another company, and don't have the footage any more. I can't find it on line, and all I know about it is that it was filmed in London and features a family sitting round a table. Does anyone have any ideas who else I could contact to try and get footage?
Many thanks.

I only just saw this message. Did you have any luck in finding the footage?
My family owned the business in the 60s and i know my father was involved in the advertising campaigns back then. I'll try and find out what company they used for shooting the ads if that helps.
