Ode to UK crew
Here at The Knowledge we are so pleased to say
Film production is having a red-letter day
And telly too, for that is rife
With cameras rolling from Kent to Fife.
The Hollywood honchos come back anew
For the tax relief and world class crew.
Our studios, sets and locations bulge
But wait, what's this? We can divulge,
That maybe, without wishing to sound a drag
There is also the chance of a nagging snag:
As the industry enjoys its growing girth,
Of fabulous crew there may be a dearth.
From line producers we now hear it said
That it's getting harder to plan ahead.
In Aberystwyth, Tring and Doddingham
Schedules are packed for months to come.
Diaries are marked in heavy ink
As UK crew barely have time to blink.
From grips to gaffers across the land
Everyone is in such demand.
So here's our plea, to all our crew
Don't go abroad, for we need you!
