[edit] Information

Series exploring the crucial ways in which the sea has helped shape modern Britain, from history and culture to economics and science, using amateur film archive.

[edit] For those in Peril.

Documentary about the home movie makers who captured the exploits of the maritime rescue services. Peter Halil's films about lighthouse keepers record the passing of a way of life, while others filmed the inherent dangers to life itself. Film of the volunteer coastguard in St Ives and the crisis to the minesweeper HMS Wave in 1951, the RNLI lifeboat in Dover coping with the Texaco Caribbean disaster in 1971, and the work of the combined rescue services during the 1979 Fastnet race are featured.

[edit] The Joy of the Sea.

Documentary about the home movie makers who captured the different ways people have enjoyed the sea during the 20th century. These range from Gerald Potter's 1930s films which bring to life the world of the upper middle class Cowes sailor, to John Adams's pioneering surfing home movies of the 1950s and Don Sykes's films of resorts like Southport which show how the joy of the sea was experienced by millions of holiday makers from the 1920s right up to the 1970s.

[edit] Gone Fishing.

The story of Britain's fishermen during the 20th century, captured in amateur home movies. Hull skipper Ken Knox and filmmaker Alan Hopper talk about the sophisticated technologies companies used to send crews to distant Atlantic waters in the 50s and 60s in the hunt for white fish. In Peterhead, Donald Anderson filmed the exploits of his crew, including his young son, as the fleets hunted herring shoals. In St Ives, the Stevens family were filmed on their boat the Sweet Promise in the 1950s.
