Notes on the video (from Newsletter 2000)


0.00 36 The original film is of poor quality, black and white and silent. Despite this it is well worth watching and shows a variety of happenings at The Heritage and Tidemills. I would guess the year to be between 1925 - 1930 and shows the unveiling of the war memorial at the Old Heritage.


0.20 14 "Portrait of Chailey Heritage". A black and white film made about 1968 and shows a general view of the work of The Heritage.


0.32 11 A colour film with sound made about 1974, again showing a general view of life at The Heritage. The films start with girls enjoying a 17th birthday party for one of them. Wendy Hollingdale, Sarah Hunter and James Harding are called out at Morning Assembly. There are also scenes of children in a class and a day at the seaside.


0.49 16 "Chailey Year". A colour film with sound made in 1979. Shows the visit of the Queen Mother, Sue Ellicot making a tea cosy for the Queen Mother with a teacher, Thelma Cox. Chailey Shop, Alice in Wonderland, Sports Day, Guide Camp at Woodlarks, Pony Riding, Swimming Gala and Nativity Play.


1.06 56 "Peter Cordice age 15 years and 4 months. A silent film showing Peter doing woodwork using his feet. A most interesting film.


1.17 35 A holiday at Sapada. Made in 1979, this film shows a school holiday with lots of skiing featured amongst the activities.


1.29 47 A holiday in Venice. Made in 1979 this film shows a school holiday. Both holiday films are in colour but are silent.
