Film about the British coast made from 100 years of archive film from the British Film Institute collection, first broadcast in November 2012 on BBC4, some limited cinema screening, and now on DVD.

imdb calls it a TV movie, but I think it's more a documentary. Presented chronologically so oldest footage at the start (so check the film time to get an idea of when the pictures date from). Just images with no captions or voiceovers to explain anything, with excellent soundtrack music by British Sea Power; the result is fascinating and very evocative of the days when the world was in black-and-white - sometimes a bit like a British Koyaanisqatsi but it has a mood of its own. Lots of spectacular images - storms, boats, wrecks, lighthouses, beaches, people doing seaside things (some very silly, some very serious) etc. Some excerpts to try - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Vr-zoGTeQE , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J9fDQxt9A70 .

Have tried to keep the entries to things which are identifiable, so a fair bit of very background stuff filtered out and not much captured before the 1930s. As the material sourced from a documentary collection, some entries may recur elsewhere. At the end there's a 30 second bit of footage of Blackpool at night in wind and rain - lots of vehicles, but spoilt by rain on camera lens so not captured. DVD has a few extra archive films which have provided footage to the main; vehicles from remaining (unused) sections listed here under Extras.

Strange sign at the Vickers-Armstrong factory in Broughton where Wellington bombers were made:

Why 6 mph? How do you know when you're doing 6 mph?

If anyone wants to play with this one - feel free. I spotted a Capri Mk3 and possibly a blue GS and then got bored.

Planes for impdb. All footage is recycled from archive documentaries. The construction footage is main feature extracts from an extras film "Worker's Week-End" (1943) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2658674/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KVk1OP_LQH4 - a Ministry of Information film about the construction of a Wellington bomber at the Vickers-Armstrong factory in Broughton (N Wales) in a record 24.5 hours. The military planes in flight may be Royal Navy rather than RAF for colour scheme and that this sequence is focussed on an aircraft carrier (eg landing rope hook in one shot) - this film and other captures unknown origin

No, 6 km/h, "pedestrian speed". When you drive a motorized vehicle, it shall be that speed, when the speedometer-needle doesn't move. If you throttle any vehicle to a max.speed of 6 km/h, you don't need any registration or insurance. Mostly you see old, little tractors with that.

Have discovered the source film - Eagles of the Fleet (1950) - a 10 minute documentary on the Fleet Air Arm of the Royal Navy - nothing really for imcdb so no page opened, but for impdb it's an absolute goldmine jam-packed with stuff. Can be found on

COI Collection Volume 3: They Stand Ready, but doesn't seem to be an online copy anywhere. But if you like 1950 UK naval planes, it's worth tracking down or even buying the DVD set.
