Educational film about the Norfolk coastline focussing on the problems of erosion.
Government sponsored film 1983 15 mins
From the collection of:
The county of Norfolk has a long coastline, and it is one of variety. There are cliffs, marshes, and dunes, as well as long stretches of sand. However, in places, the coast is under constant attack and land is being lost to the sea. But Norfolk’s coast must be looked after, for it provides a living for many Norfolk people, whether catering for tourists or fishing. Norfolk County Council’s Education Department made this film to show what is being done about the problem of erosion.
