1966

Description

This film was made by an amateur filmmaker who was a farmer from Reighton, near Filey, North Yorkshire. The film chronicles a day at the beach, possibly Filey, as the village was nearby. It also includes footage of country dancing.

The film opens with scenes of the family playing on the sandy beach. Close ups capture the children playing on the sand, making sandcastles, and playing in the sea.

The final sequence is set at the village school and shows children country dancing in the playground. Long shots capture the dance, and spectators can be seen at the side-lines. There is light flashing throughout the film which results in poor image quality.
