Andy presents the fascinating story of Virginia Bradford, a silent movie actress who led an amazingly colourful life.

We look at her early childhood, her rise to fame and her decision to leave the film industry.

Once her film career came to an end she moved to England where she has many more adventures, multiple husbands and numerous brushes with the law in London, Cornwall and many other locations around the country before her story comes to a somewhat tragic end.

Virginia is a fascinating subject and her story makes for a very popular presentation.

About Andrew Tennet

I was a police officer in Northamptonshire for 30 years, rising from the rank of Police Constable to Detective Chief Inspector and was an accredited Senior Investigating Officer, licensed by the Home Office to investigate the most serious of offences.

During my five or more years as part of the Homicide and Major Crime Team these skills were in constant use. Later, as the deputy head of the the Professional Standards department (the real life 'Line of Duty'), I was able to use these skills again.

I am a keen cyclist and open water swimmer as well as a qualified Open Water Lifeguard.

I have been delivering my presentations for many years or more to a wide range of groups such as the WI, Rotary Clubs, local history societies, Probus and many other social groups. I get many repeat bookings from groups which suggests that they enjoy my talks.

All of my talks are delivered by way of Powerpoint and I have all of my own equipment to do so. Many of the talks are supported by documents and photographs for your audience to examine.
