  • Description

    Norfolk.

    "Down on the Broads, where leafy harbours lure you on to smooth waters - " Scenic view of the Broads shot through a frame of trees. Two women stand at the waters edge looking at the boats and waving. Another view of boats on the water seen through the trees. M/S of yachts at anchor. "A regular "highway" - with no "road up for repairs." Travelling shot from on board a boat as it moves down the Broad. Various shots of other boats it passes including houseboats.

    Camera follows a small motorboat, and children in the boat smile at the camera as it passes. "Views that conjure up thoughts of Holland's lowly stretches." Camera moves past a windmill on the banks of the broad. Another view as the boat travels along the Broad. "A real Broad Highway." reads an intertitle before a shot of another windmill.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 527.
