Contextual information

Roger Bernard Dunford bought his 16mm cine camera from the Co-Op on London Road, Brighton for £25, as a treat for himself on his 21st birthday.

A specially recorded soundtrack was made for this video compilation by Sam Lippett, Harvey Herman and Ed Cheverton from the University of Brighton and Brighton Swimming Club member Bella Kardasis.
