    I attach hereto copies of correspondence with Anthony Gilkinson Associates concerning the above Production Number, which is 'hand out' material.

    Dear Tony,
    I am writing to thank you for sending us the mute film material of the Burmah Oil Group North Sea Exploration - I have had it 'booked in' and it will be held by our Editorial Department until they can release it on the announcement of the oil find.

    It's nice to know they have found oil and gas, and I hope they have a 'gusher' - I believe they are the only people so far to have actually found oil in the North Sea.

    Your remarks about Library use have been noted and I shall inform our Librarian accordingly.

    With kindest regards,
    Yours sincerely,
    LESLIE MURRAY.

    Technical Manager.
