Many a camper had a good morning at the Butlin's holiday camp in North-West Wales, documented in this promotional newsreel

Documentary 1951 24 mins Silent


Where are you going on your holidays? Err... Wales! You might not be able to pronounce it, but it sure looks a jolly old time at the Butlin's holiday camp in Pwlheli, north-west Wales. This newsreel-style promotional film really benefits from the supported access and extended production time of a commissioned crew to document a community approach to holidaying. From the close-ups of the audience at a wrestling bout to the first tentative steps on the roller rink, there are plenty of delightful scenes to witness here.
