The DVD “Kent on Film” is brought to you by Kent Archives Service and Screen Archive South East. This DVD features extracts from films of Kent from the collections of Screen Archive South East and the British Film Institute. The 60 minute DVD compilation introduces you to films of the county dating from the beginnings of the cinema in 1895, up to events from the early 1960s. The films range across many different aspects of life including: working on the land, town life, the seaside between the wars, the home front and the Second World War and events during the Festival of Britain in 1951. Through this edited selection, we visit Dover, Folkestone, Canterbury, Maidstone, Margate, Broadstairs, Egerton, Sevenoaks and Tunbridge Wells.
This DVD was produced by the Kent Archives Service and Screen Archive South East at the University of Brighton. We thank all of our donors and depositors and the British Film Institute for making the production of this DVD possible.
