A Sense of Place
A Sense of Place: Our Screen Heritage

At Wessex Film and Sound Archive you can see and hear history, from late Victorian times to the present day, through moving images and sound recordings. The Archive contains over 35,000 film and sound recordings relating to central southern England, including film and tapes of local TV and radio, to study and enjoy.

The online exhibition A Sense of Place: Our Screen Heritage is a micro exhibition aimed at showcasing a small part of our collection. It highlights some of the work done as part of a project funded by the UKFilm Council. 'Screen Heritage UK - Revitalising the Regions' aimed to focus on film material that reinforces a sense of place within the region.
We have chosen a selection of items that fall broadly within two categories:

Communities

Maritime

In addition, you can find out more about the filmmakers we showcase in the Filmmakers section.
