Quote:
"VTR St-Jacques [...] documents a pioneering example of community access video. Although the film-makers were responsible for training the videographers / editors, they otherwise wrote themselves out of the video work as professional documentarists. [...] With the coming of the camcorder, the model of VTR St-Jacques has been followed most assiduously at the BBC's Community Programmes Unit [...]."
