Before our lives were ruled by Health and Safety, the University of Cape Town residences would compete in the JAMIE RACES. The races are no longer run. The reason will become apparent. The second half of the video records the UCT Rag, a fund-raising Mardi Gras.

I took the original footage on a 8mm Paillard Bolex clockwork cine where it remained for 40 years. Recently I digitised it by projecting the cine and copying it to my Canon camcorder. Video editing, titling and music was added with Serif MoviePlus X3.
