This is Dave Sudbury's original version of The King of Rome. Please watch in 480p mode.
Normally when I create videos I have to find suitable music to fit but this project was different as I was given the music by the composer and had to find suitable images to help tell the story. I found this an enjoyable challenge which I think I've managed quite well.
So, whats the video about? : The owner of the "King of Rome" was from a Derby family of Pigeon fanciers, Charlie Hudson was born in the 1870s, in 1913 his short-distance racing pigeon won a race from Italy to Derby which made it a much sort after bird.
If you enjoyed the song that was inspired by the story then a CD of his work can be bought from the singers website : http://www.thekingofrome.com/
Hopefully within the next couple of months you should be able to buy a childrens book Illustrated by Hans Saefkow. Follow the links in the web feature below for more details.
