A compilation of home movies, filmed principally around the village of Tideswell in Derbyshire, and made as an amateur newsreel service. The compilation includes footage of a 1937 family holiday to Northumberland, visiting Blyth, Bamburgh, and Seaton Sluice, a wedding during the Second World War, and footage of a swimming gala at Tynemouth Outdoor Pool in 1939.
An amateur film made by Victor Sidney Carman of various events of relevance to him taking place during 1951. The film records a family trip to the beach at Whitley Bay and views of terraced streets both in Wallsend and Batley in West Yorkshire where children are filmed playing in empty plots possibly the result of World War Two bomb damage. Nurses pose with children at a hospital near Morpeth and a boy takes a bike ride near Alnwick Castle in Northumberland. The film ends with crowds looking over two Royal Navy ships moored along the Newcastle Quayside.
