Documentary on Sooty creator to premiere in Guiseley

The premiere of a documentary about the creator of Sooty is to take place tonight in Guiseley.

Harry Corbett lived in the town for more than 35-years-and now local people are being invited to a sneak preview of the film which promises to give new information about his life.

His life story and the creation of Sooty, is a tale that has never been properly told before.

Producer and Director Jeff Smart said

The event will be attended by Harry's son Matthew Corbett, who was Sooty's handler for 25 years as well as Sooty's current right hand man Richard Cadell, and Brenda Longman - the voice of Soo.

Any profits from the event will go towards the provision of a Community Public Access Defibrillator for the Guiseley area in conjunction with the Global CPAD Campaign.
