HENRY BRAHAM   BSC

 

Born: 30 October 1965, ?, UK.

Career: Henry Braham and his wife Glynis Murray lead double lives. During the week they're based in Notting Hill and are respected figures in the British film industry. On Friday evenings they climb into their green Land Rover and head for the village of Tawstock in North Devon. As soon as they arrive at their 17th-century farmhouse the talk has less to do with shooting schedules and more about the hemp harvest. It's seven years since they started growing the crop and six months since they began selling their home-grown hemp oil and toasted hemp seeds in supermarkets. Called 'Good Oil' and 'Good Seed', the products are an unlikely success story.' [From article in 'The Observer', 2004.]
