There's an opportunity to step back in time in Hartlepool thanks to a remarkable compilation of archive film footage.
The bustling port of the 1950s, Hartlepool airport in 1939, a 1966 corporation carnival, the 1970s town in bloom and famous faces including Brian Clough and Andy Capp are just some of the sights in ‘Moving North: Coastal Comes To Hartlepool’ which will be screened at Hartlepool Town Hall Theatre on Thursday 19th October at 7pm.
Curated and presented by the North-East Film Archive, the screening takes people on a journey through time revealing the rich film heritage of the North-East coastline. It uses amateur and home movies, travelogues and regional television productions, many recently digitised as part of Britain on Film - a partnership project with the British Film Institute.
Here's a taster of the film:
