From the Sea to the Land Beyond
2012-01-01 | 1h 13m 3s | History
Director Penny Woolcock stitches together the story of Britain's relationship with the sea and the coast using footage from the BFI National Archive, some going back to the very beginnings of film. The film examines industry, such as fishing and shipbuilding; war, with footage of soldiers on their way to the western front and Luftwaffe attacks; seaside leisure, Edwardian and current; nature and man's relationship with it. British Sea Power's acclaimed soundtrack runs the length of the film.
