Film ID: YFA 136 THE GARDEN AND 2 NOTHERN FISHING VESSELS 1939 Visitor TabsDescription This is two films, the first of Noel Beardsell in his garden with his son and pet dog, the second a short portrait of the fishing villages of Barnmouth and Eyemouth, Scotland. (Col.) Title – A tribute to the memory of Rudyard Kipling by Noel T Beardsell Intertitle – Our England is a garden that is full of stately views, of borders, beds and shrubberies and lawns and avenues. The film begins showing a fountain, and then Beardsell playing with a Great Dane on the lawn. Various parts of the garden are shown, with flower beds and shrubberies. Beardsell sits on a chair in the garden where he is reading a newspaper with his pet terrier lying beside him. He watches while his son David clears up the garden. His wife picks a rose, and then many flowers are shown in close up. Two gardeners are also at work. Title – Two Northern fishing villages 110 ft (B&W) Portrayed by Noel T Beardsell Intertitle – Against the rugged north-eastern coast the waves beat ceaselessly. Waves are beating against the rocks. Intertitle – Approached by road the tiny village of Barnmouth looks quaint and homely. A car (Reg. AKU 605) drives down towards the coastal village and along the sea front before stopping. Intertitle – But times are hard and many hands are idle. A row of men sit looking out to sea. There are fishing boats in the harbour, and a fisherman repairing nets. Behind him houses are being built. A man stands in front of a brazier holding a baby. Another old man stands with a small girl in front of a large fishing net hanging to dry. Intertitle – Eyemouth is larger – but trade is little better . . . Two men repair their fishing nets while on their boats. Intertitle – . . . and there are always hungry mouths to feed. Seagulls flock around the boats as a boy waves a fish in the air. The boats sail off. Intertitle – Visitors, like ourselves, bring a little seasonal prosperity. Mrs Beardsell and another man sit looking out to sea. Intertitle – But year-in-year-out their main living always comes from the Sea. The film finishes showing waves crash against the walls of the village.
