Description

Made by Roger Teale, this short film documents a trip to the Farne Islands, a group of islands off the coast of Northumberland which are famous for their puffins.  The film includes footage of the boat trip to the islands.

Title – Visit to Farne Islands

The film opens with travellers walking towards a bus.  The group is made up of mostly older people, many of whom carry bags or small pieces of luggage.  Once arriving at the islands, the holidaymakers disembark the bus.  Other islands and a lighthouse can be seen in the background.  

Members of the group board a boat to tour the islands.  There are shots of the famous puffins as well as footage of the sea and other passing boats as they return from the boat tour.
