A fresh, entertaining and fascinating look back at life in Torbay from the 1800s to the 1950s. This remarkable period in Torbay’s history is brought to life with cine-film, old photographs, historic sketches and stories from the archives of the Western Morning News and the Herald Express.

News stories from the past provide a unique commentary on important local events as they actually happened, and a rare insight into the everyday lives of local people in times gone by. The wonderful collection of old film and pictures show the remarkable changes that have taken place over the last 200 years. The DVD also contains a special feature on the Second World War when Torbay provided a haven for London evacuees, German bombers brought death and destruction, and the area played a crucial part in the D Day landings. Narrated by Howard Ellison.
