    Film demonstrates multiple uses of caravans - recommended to 'revival of the 60's design' searchers.

  • Description

    Marlow, Buckinghamshire.

    L/S of a great number of Caravans lined up on a camping site. Camera pans to show a crowded swimming pool. M/S of the people around and in the pool having fun. L/S of the outside of a supermarket, people around.

    M/S of a woman taking a product from the supermarket shelf. Several shots of people socialising around the camp, enjoying the caravan site holiday. "...here's one way to spend a holiday with all the comforts of home".

    Voiceover talks about the advantages of the caravan life highlighting the freedom of choice. Once it stops rolling, it becomes the same as any other home. Various shots of caravans transformed into permanent homes with neat gardens around them. M/S of several people gardening. Beautiful C/U shots of flowers in bloom.

    Several M/S of the two women cooking. Cut to a high angle shot of dinner table where two couples are having dinner. M/S of an elderly couple sitting in their caravan lounge, talking. High angle M/S of a woman bathing a child in a bath.

    Succession of shots demonstrating how caravan cars are made - from designs on paper to the completed shiny caravans being loaded into a ship - ready for export. Caravan homes have become a successful export industry - claims the voiceover.

    Note: Several rather contemporary looking caravan designs - Wall-Paper* material.
