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.
Every day at Fylingdales, the Early Warning Missile Base high on the North York Moors near Whitby in North Yorkshire, 5000 space objects come under the day-and-night questioning of 100-ton radar scanners. The basic function of Fylingdales is to alert the West to possible Russian nuclear ballistic attack. Three 'golf-balls' dominate Fylingdales, along with a smaller listening-ear dome which analyses interference from unwanted radio and television signals. This documentary provides a fascinating insight into the function of Fylingdales. We visit the operation room, accessed by a secret 800 metre long tunnel, and find out about the 700 people who man this highly-secret, self-contained township. Peace protestors and CND supporters have their say too.
The film depicts several highlights of the filmmaker’s holidays in 1934. The majority of the film was made in Torquay, but it also features shots recorded in a number of areas near the south coast in Britain.
