Made by members of the Harrogate Cine Club, this film captures some of the well-known landmarks in York as well as the annual cycle rally on the Knavesmire.
This is the first part of a film showing some of the events at the six-day Services Searchlight Tattoo on Knavesmire in September 1971, as part of the York Pageant. There are also some views of York Cathedral and a fire. The film begins looking at the outside of the South Transept of York Minster, the West End, the Rose window and the West Tower. From on top of the tower there is a view down onto the road below. There is a fire in an old ruin (possibly near the East transept). The film switches to the York Pageant with the six-day Services Searchlight Tattoo on Knavesmire in September. With a fabricated castle background, there is a heraldic display with jousting and sword fights. One person gets dragged along by a horse. There is more jousting as the film comes to an end.
This is a collection of four films made by a Beverley filmmaker, possibly Peter Robinson. The first is of a steam fair, the second of a trip to York, the third showing the inside of Beverley Minster and the fourth showing a Remembrance Day commemoration.
