BFI COAST AND SEA

It was a huge honour to be commissioned by the BFI for the third year running.

600 newly digitised archive Coast and Sea titles, dating from 1898, were added to the Britain on Film online collection last June.

And, as in previous years, Wales offered some fantastic treasures including Clog Dance – a 1959 film set in Porthmadog which celebrates the Welsh tradition of clog dancing.

Many of the films have remained unseen since they were first shown so it is always a huge delight to help share these marvellous films to the people of Wales.

Coverage included a features on ITV Wales and Heno (S4C), a double page spread in the Western Mail as well as items on the Radio Wales Arts Show, Wales Online and in numerous regional and local newspapers.
