Here is a shot of St Michaels Mount in Cornwall. Most amateur photographers look for a chance to capture a good sunset. The low light levels make this a difficult shot. This footage dates from the fifties and was shot on 16 mm
Found in a poor state in a dirty wooden box and now restored. The footage can be seen in full at a Cine Star Film Show.

See Up Coming Events.

Here we see a gathering of local civic dignitaries. We think it was for the visit of HRH Prince Phillip to open a new playing field. As the films have not been seen for maybe 50/60 years information is still a little thin. The gentleman in the overcoat with no hat (second row in the right of the screen) is a Mr "Bookie" Rogers. He was a local Turf Accountant and later Mayor of Helston. As with all info on web site please let us know if you can add to our knowledge.

Here is some footage of Flushing Carnival 1950.This footage was part of a box of film on a Newton Abbot Market stall and bought for a few pounds. It was amongst the last unsold remnants of a local house clearance.
From the footage we know that the family spent time in Cornwall, they may have been the local chemist shop owners.
This little clip just gives a taste of the whole event captured for posterity by an amateur camera man on their home movie camera.

This is Crackington Haven on the north coast of Cornwall. This looks to be filmed in the 30s.
This popular beauty spot has changed subtly over the years. Today it still has all the charms it had then.
This footage is waiting for digital transfer and will feature in our next season’s shows
