Haywards Heath Cine Society member Pierre Tester presents a brief film about Brighton Marina. Images of the marina and its yachts are accompanied by a commentary and an interview with Marina representative John Little.


Pierre Tester's amusing film from 1979 looks at the newly opened Brighton Marina - one of the South Coast's biggest construction projects at that time. It opens with John Little speaking to camera against a backdrop of yachts and boats at their berths and moving about in the marina. A man pulling on a rope punctuates the narrative, with apologies from the film maker. After reviewing the entire marina, its locks and its lighthouse the film ends with a visual pun.
