The Story



The Producers


Alan Tomlinson, TV’s late Director of Original Programming was the consummate storyteller, an astute observer of the human condition for whom sincere concern for the disadvantaged, the vulnerable and a hatred for injustice and unnecessary suffering was at the heart of his work.
An award-winning journalist and television producer whose career includes newspapers, broadcasting in both radio and television, as well as documentary filmmaking, Tomlinson produced, directed and partially edited “Boca Raton: The Secret Weapon That Won WWII” before his untimely death in November 2016. To stay true to Alan’s vision, his wife, Francesca de Onis who was co-producer on the film, finished the project as a tribute to his legacy as a filmmaker.
