A colour film made during the Second World War and shortly afterwards, showing scenes of Brighton and beyond.


This colour film was made during the Second Word War, starting in Brighton, showing the Royal Pavilion and the Dome, with blackout markings on kerbs and trees. Buses and trolley-buses speed past, sharing the roads with only a few cars. Two nuns can be seen crossing Preston Road before scenes of a farm near Burgess Hill and a walk around a garden in Warninglid.
