A promotional film by Turners Film Unit for the North East Development Council, which records the North East’s recent industrial, commercial, social and cultural successes to encourage businesses and families to move to the region. Includes footage of education, art and entertainment, shopping, and industry from Northumberland down to Tees Valley.
This home movie shows a number of favourite North East destinations for a family to relish the open air, either in the countryside or next to water such as Derwentside in County Durham and Tynemouth. More of a holiday excursion appears later in the film as the family visit the west country before returning north again.
Amateur travelogue by Harry A Soloman, an early member of Newcastle & District Amateur Cinematographers Association, featuring scenes at Newcastle upon Tyne, Cullercoats, Whitley Bay, Wylam and Durham.
