Sussex on Film

Synopsis
The DVD offers a unique insight into the life and work of the people of the South East from late Victorian times to the present day, all through the camera lenses of local film-makers. Their cameras captured the spirit of the times from the packed bank holiday beaches of Bognor to the tranquil rural scenes of trug-making and sheep shearing in the downland countryside. In Chichester the local Cine Club filmed the enthusiastic celebrations of the Silver Jubilee of George V and Queen Mary in 1935. Colour footage after the war includes a travelogue featuring the beauty spots of West and East Sussex in 1946 and another promotional film of Brighton in the 1950s.
