Bingham Model Railway Club & It’s Australian Connections

In the past, Bingham Model Railway Club recruited a Member, Alecs Porock, from Perth Australia, who then lived in Radcliffe until he moved to America. Not long after Alecs left, we recruited yet another former member of Perth Model Railway Club Barrie Keens. Barrie asked for Alecs’s contact details because he had lost touch! The latest Aussie to visit us August 5th was Phil Jeffery with his wife Shirley. It seems unlikely that he will also move from Melbourne in OZ to join us because he has an active life with the Australian Victorian Model Railway Society. If anyone else wants to visit us to see what we do, contact Graham as below. Graham Dean, 01949...
The Bingham Triangle

The Bingham Triangle

The old market town of Bingham is a just small settlement on in between Nottingham and Newark, but there have been increasing reports of strange meteorological conditions in Bingham and the immediate surrounding areas. Recent revelations have uncovered a “microclimate” stemming from the centre of Bingham and travelling northwards towards East Bridgford, and in a southerly direction towards the small village of Cropwell Bishop in Nottinghamshire. This area between these three geographical points, where the variations in climate have occurred, is coming to be known as “The Bingham Triangle” – taking its name from The Bermuda Triangle, the infamous triangular space notorious for the disappearance for several planes and ships. No planes or ships have been reported missing in the Bingham area however, but the interesting microclimate that has been reported is causing a stir amongst authorities, academics and the local residents. A microclimate is an atmospheric zone that hosts a different climate to the surrounding areas. These types of zones can vary in size from the very small; microclimates have been known to exist in spaces of just a few feet, to large masses of land measuring a number of square miles. The latter is more suitable to the phenomenon experienced in and around Bingham. What has been witnessed in “The Bingham Triangle” is that the weather front will noticeably change upon the approach to the borders of this “triangle”. The sort of microclimate behaviour that has been reported demonstrate that it will be sunny in other neighbouring counties and towns, such as in Lincolnshire or even in Nottinghamshire itself, but it will be cloudy, overcast or even...

The Art of Music for the Corporate Video

So you’ve just filmed a corporate video. You have the perfect short video that best describes your company and what you are about. With a topnotch performance and cinematography worthy of an Oscar, there just seems to be one thing missing. Despite your greatest efforts the video just seems slow and uninteresting. This is where your choice of music comes in. And in some respects the ingredient that can make or break your video. So it’s strange that the choice of music always seems to be somewhat of an afterthought or not even considered at all. You may be tempted to use your favorite song in the background, but when you see the cost of licensing the music from the record labels, you’ll be quick to change your mind. So you’ll no doubt turn to royalty free music. There is a plethora to choose from. Some you’ll pay a one off fee, anywhere between £10 and £50 but if you really want to keep costs low, there is the free stuff, of which there is plenty, but to find anything worth using, you’ll have to spend some time to find that diamond in the rough. There is no exact science to choosing the perfect piece of music for the video, but you can at least go by the feel of the music to match the tone of the video you want to create. Whilst it seems counterproductive, generally you don’t want the music to be noticed, at least whilst there is talking or narration. So whilst that soft rock tune creates the perfect energetic vibe, if it draws attention...
