West Country Journey (1953)
26 minutes - Colour

A still from the 1954 BTF Catalogue.

In the course of the journey, linked through commentary with the rich and evocative literature of the West, we see the Devon of the children's holiday and the multi-coloured pattern of the Devon countryside, the rivers, the moors, the old historic buildings of Totnes and Dartmouth and Exeter, the tiny ports of the merchant-adventurers, and the great naval docks of Devonport.
Across the Tamar, Cornwall also provides long sandy beaches. It has its Arthurian legends and its little fishing ports with their warm and mysterious names.

A still from the 1957 BTF Catalogue.
