This is one of a collection of films made by the Selby Cine Club. This film provides a wonderful overview of the town of Selby as it was in 1965 and is accompanied by an interesting historical commentary. It shows pedestrians and traffic in the town centre, many of the shops, and includes the Toll Bridge, the Monday market, the Reverend John Kent giving a tour of the Abbey, the shipyard, the BOCM Mill, and a Council meeting.
This film is concerned with York Minster’s restoration efforts after the 1984 fire destroyed a significant section of roof, stonework, and stained glass. The majority of the programme showcases the painstaking restoration work taking place inside the structure. This film was made as part of the 1980s Yorkshire Television series ‘Calendar Magazine’.
