A Christmas poem from The Knowledge
'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the land
The film crews were wrapping their projects-in-hand
And telly folk too, with their reels in the can
Did head home in the snow, each woman and man.
For 2017 had been quite a year,
With features and dramas - they were all filming here.
From all over the world the producers had come,
Bringing gifts of investment in sparkling sum.
They had heard of the wonderful, talented crew
So, tax credits in hand, to the UK they flew.
At the end of their journey they did see a light,
A light that was burning so softly at night.
It guided them o'er mountain, river and glen
And lo! Then they saw - it was Warner Bros. Leavesden!
So here's to the studios, the old and the new
And the ones not quite finished, that are still being hewn.
To the marvellous work that our readers all do,
Here's to 2018 - for we salute you.
