We recently received an email from a member at Armadale Uniting Church in Melbourne, Australia, asking our permission to reprint an article titled ‘J Arthur Rank, Methodist Film Pioneer’, from our Easter 2011 magazine, found on the internet. The article was written by Libby Stone. It so happened that, later the same day, I was at Galloway's in Penwortham recording the next issue of the 'Methodist Recorder'. It also happened that Libby was one of the readers, a long with Sue Davis. I asked Libby’s permission, which was duly given and the same evening replied to Australia. I also sent a link to the recording so that he could hear Libby reading. All of this in just over 12 hours. The power of the internet!
