Fred Rolfe documentary at the Fisher Theatre, Bungay
A NEW documentary film with a strong Bungay flavour is being staged at the Fisher Theatre on Wednesday.
The Truth Behind I Walked by Night looks at the life of Fred Rolfe, who lived his last years in the town in the 1930s, and shows him in a different light to the character he portrayed himself in his autobiography, I Walked by Night, in which he is the self-styled King of the Norfolk Poachers.
Charlotte Paton, formerly of Bungay, who wrote the book on the same theme, has produced the film and narrates it.
It is full of fascinating insights into our rural past, family history research and the illicit thrills of poaching, and a modern day detective story which grips from start to finish.
It features the memories of some local residents who knew Fred during his 20 years in Bungay.
