    An item about a quirky new craze at Butlin's - sun tattoos!

  • Description

    Bognor Regis, West Sussex.

    A look at the latest craze for sun tattoos started at the Butlin's holiday camp.

    M/S of a woman in a bikini lying on her stomach, on her back are the words - "Joe is my dream boy". A young man (Joe, maybe?) takes her hand and they chat. C/U of a young man sticking masking tape onto a woman's back, making the words - "I love Fred".

    A tanned girl walks to the edge of the pool and pulls on a swimming cap. She has the words - "I love me" - tattooed by the sun on her back. The girl dives into the pool. A young man swims over to a woman who has the words - "I'm free" - on her back. M/S of two girls playing catch - the one nearest the camera has - "Chalet 10" - written on her back, the other girl has the words - "Browned Off" .

    C/U of the second young man peeling the words - "I love Fred" - off the girl's back. She has been tanned by the sun except for in the places where the tape has been. A burly man enters looking cross, the young man scarpers. The burly man drags the woman off by the hand. The burly man has the words - "I am Fred" - written on his back.

    M/S of an odd job man. He looks at the pile of used tape on the ground and shakes his head. He then goes about sweeping it up.

    The girls featured are all members of the Marie De Vere Dancing Troop. They are named as Jean Brewster, Cathy Rolfe, Linda Bristow, Thelma Ingram, Olive White and Chris Elliot. For search purposes: Butlins.
