Portishead - Past and Present

Based on the excellent series of books by local historian Ken Crowhurst, this film illustrates the fascinating history of Portishead. The narrator's unrivalled collection of Portishead photographs and postcards blends perfectly with modern film, resulting in a memorable portrayal of this picturesque seaside town.

Features include the town's heyday as a seaside resort and recollections of the pleasure steamers. There are also memories of Portishead Docks, local industry, the railway, BTS Formidable and the Nautical School. St. Peters Church is visited as part of a tour of 'Old Posset' and historic houses and shops are also included.

The world-famous Portishead Radio Station is remembered, as are golden days at Redcliffe Bay. There is also a special report on the new development at Portishead Quays.
