Production Notes by Kevin Hiley

US and Soviet flags over the planet Earth

Filmed in spring 2000 over two days Data Protection was a turbulent project that was given a complete plot change half way through production, and it seems much better for it.

Filmed at Jodrell Bank observatory in Cheshire, the Lovell Radio space telescope makes a fabulous backdrop to this haunting story in the style of Sapphire and Steel.

Struggling with an alarming lack of time, location troubles and a script that no one had time to learn, Data Protection manages to emerge with few drawbacks. It was filmed on DVCAM, which at the time made it JM&KHs highest quality production.

Data Protection won "Best Film" and "Best Use of Sound" at the Huddersfield Video and Cine Club and was awarded the Challenge Cup.
